Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Beat butter, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour, beating on low speed after each addition until well blended. Add nuts; mix well.
  • Shape dough into 48 (1-inch) balls. Place, 1-1/2 inches apart, on baking sheets.
  • Bake 14 to 15 min. or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool 5 min. on baking sheets. Roll warm cookies, 1 at a time, in remaining sugar in small bowl until evenly coated; place on wire racks. Cool completely.

Size Wise

Enjoy your favorite foods on occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.

Make it Easy

Use a blender or food processor to finely chop the nuts. Just be careful not to overprocess them or you'll end up with nut butter!

Special Extra

Place cookie dough on parchment-covered baking sheets to prevent cookies from sticking to pans and to help keep baking sheets clean between batches.

How to Store

Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made as a "honeymoon" gift... Made as a "honeymoon" gift... They don't seem that sweet initially but once the powdered sugar is liberally sprinkled all over, you get the full flavor. I'll use 1 1/2C of Pecans next time and Almond extract... Very light in taste and crispy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I make these every year. I make these every year. I had to tweek the recipe. It was too dry so I added 1/4 cup extra of butter, and I only had to bake them at 13 minutes. Other than that, they are always wonderful to add to my gift baskets at Christmas.

My manager made these to celebrate a co-workers 10th anniversary and they were so good and melted in your mouth. My co-worker and I declared these should be called crack cookies because they are so addictive!

Wonderful recipe, mine weren't exactly ball-shaped after baking (flattened out a bit for some reason) but taste was amazing. Made them to give for a gift to a friend but my hubby now wants some just for him.
