Wonderfully textured, cream cheese, butter and pecans create rich and delicious cookie. Perfect for Christmas, too!

1 cup butter, softened (no substitutes)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2-1/2 cups pecans, finely chopped
Confectioners’ sugar

Combine flour, sugar and salt, set aside. Cream butter and cream cheese, beat in vanilla. Slowly add the flour to the creamed mixture. Stir in pecans to make a crumbly dough.

Using a tablespoonful at a time, shape cookies into 2” logs. Place on un-greased baking sheets and bake at 375$#176; for 12 – 15 minutes, until very lightly browned.

Allow to cool slightly and roll in confectioners’ sugar. Place on wire racks to cool completely and roll in confectioners’ sugar again.

Store in an air tight tin.

Yield: approximately 48 cookies.
