Pecan Delights

Yield about 4 dozen


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chopped pecans

How to Make It

  1. Cream butter in a medium mixing bowl; add 1/2 cup sugar, water, and vanilla, beating well.

  2. Combine flour and pecans in a small mixing bowl; stir well. Gradually add to creamed mixture, stirring well.

  3. Pinch off small portions of dough, and shape like dates. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets, and bake at 325° for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets while still warm, and roll each cookie in remaining sugar. Place on wire racks to cool completely.
