3 1/2 dozen balls
Contains nuts, Good for parties/potlucks
1 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups pecans, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Cream butter thoroughly.
Add remaining ingredients except powdered sugar.
Roll into balls about walnut size.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 35 minutes.
Roll in powdered sugar immediately and cool on waxed paper.
If you like these, you can also try the Russian Teacakes that bake hotter and quicker. I prefer them a bit smaller than 'walnut' size. One inch diameter maximum is a good size.

I have made these cookies SO many times. I'm always asked to bake them for bake sales during the year. I've found that mixing the batter with your clean hands is best, rather than with a spoon. Mine have never been dry. I only bake them for 32 minutes. I always roll them twice in the powdered sugar...once when they're still pretty hot and then later after they've cooled off some. They are a very tender cookie, so you have to be careful to handle them delicately.

Recipe was easy to follow, just found that the cookies are a little dry. Next time I'll add a little more butter. Still worth making.
