1/2 cup butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup finely chopped pecans
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, sugar and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in pecans (dough will be crumbly).
Roll into small balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Carefully roll warm cookies in confectioners' sugar; cool on wire racks or plate. When cool, roll once more in confectionners' sugar.
These are a perfect, seasonal cookies! They are GREAT with a glass of milk... or as Dad and Mom like it, Coffee!
