Ingredients

  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Powered Sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Pecans, finely chopped and toasted

Yields 24

    Instructions

    1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. 2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter, ½ c. of the powdered sugar and the vanilla until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Gradually add the flour and salt, beating on low speed after each addition until well blended. Mix in the pecans. Shape dough into 1½-inch balls and place on baking sheets. 3. Bake 15-18 minutes or until bottoms of cookies are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes on the baking sheets. Roll warm cookies in the remaining ½ c. powdered sugar until evenly coated. Place on wire racks and let cool completely. Store in an air tight container at room temperature.

    The cookies that are served at most weddings and celebrations are known in Mexico as biscochitos. The basic ingredients are nearly identical to Russian teacakes or shortbread: ground nuts, flour, butter, sugar. In Mexico they are rolled into balls or formed into crescent shapes and covered with confectioner’s sugar.

    3. Thanks for the article. My spouse and i have often noticed that a lot of people are wanting to lose weight when they wish to appear slim and also attractive. Nevertheless, they do not often realize that there are additional benefits for you to losing weight as well. Doctors declare that fat people are afflicted with a variety of disorders that can be directly attributed to the excess weight. Fortunately that people who’re overweight in addition to suffering from different diseases can reduce the severity of their own illnesses through losing weight. You possibly can see a steady but noted improvement with health if even a minor amount of weight-loss is realized.
