Butter Pecan Cookies for Tea Time


3/4 cup pecans

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter at room temperature

1/3 cup sugar (plus more for coating)

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt

1 cup all purpose flour


Preheat over to 350.

On a baking sheet, toast pecans about 6 minutes, or until fragrant. Let cool, finely chop.

With an electric mixer, cream butter and 1/3 cup sugar until light, about 1 minute.

Beat in salt, vanilla, and flour, scraping down sides of bowl, just until dough comes together. Fold in pecans.

Separate dough into 12 pieces; squeeze down to shape into balls.

Roll in sugar. Place 3 inches apart, on a baking sheet. Gently flatten with the bottom of a glass (reshape sides if necessary).

Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake until golden brown, rotating halfway through, about 15 minutes.

Cool cookies on a wire tack.
