2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Additional powdered sugar (approximately 3/4 cup)
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In Small Batter Bowl, combine flour, pecans, cinnamon, and salt; mix well and set aside.
2. In Classic Batter Bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add vanilla; beat well. Gradually add flour to butter mixture; beat on low speed just until dry ingredients are incorporated.
3. Using Small Scoop, drop level scoops of dough, 1 inch apart, onto flat Baking Stone. Bake 12-14 minutes or until cookies are set but not brown. Remove cookies to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool 5 minutes. While cookies are still warm, roll in additional powdered sugar to coat. Cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
Yield: About 4 dozen cookies
Is the measurement for the vanilla using our vanilla or regular vanilla?
