  1. Combine flour, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in a bowl to form a dough; stir in pecans.
  2. Shape dough into a large ball and refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet.
  5. Make an indentation with thumb in the middle of each ball, forming a 'nest'.
