  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, vegetable oil, 1 cup white sugar and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the pecans. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll each ball in remaining white sugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are golden. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.


  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Not a great flavor, I used real butter and they still came out kind of bland. They weren't dense at all like the kind you buy in the store. All in all I wouldn't make these again.

These are great! They have a yummy, tender, almost flaky texture. I used butter instead of margarine, and canola oil. Mine didn't spread out at all and stayed in pretty much a ball shape; it ...

These are delicious! They don't spread much, so you can put a whole bunch on one cookie sheet. They reminded me of Mexican wedding cookies, so I rolled some of them in powdered sugar -- but do...

These are my son's new favorite cookie. The only thing I did different was substitute the margarine for half butter and half Crisco and I toasted the pecans. They disappear quickly at our hou...

These cookies are very good! The dough is very soft, so you might want to refrigerate it before shaping into balls.
