Pecan Puffs II Recipe

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sifted cake flour
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar for rolling
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the vanilla. Grind pecans in a food processor or blender; toss with cake flour. Stir the pecan mixture into the creamed mixture until well blended. Roll the dough into tablespoon balls, then place them 1 inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 25 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Roll warm cookies in confectioners' sugar. When they are cooled, roll them again.
