    1/2 batch Pecan Puffs
    1 cup butter
    2 cups all purpose unbleached flour
    2 tsp pure vanilla
    4 tbsp powdered sugar
    1 3/4 cup ground pecans, or walnuts

    If you would like a sweeter cookie, add an additional 4 tbsp. of powdered sugar. I created this recipe to have less sugar on purpose, as I feel once you roll the cookie in powdered sugar–it is sweet enough. On the nuts, you can chop in very small pieces.
