Italian Christmas Cookies

My mother made these crumbly powdered sugar coated cookies every Christmas.  They are easy to make and I am thrilled to be able to share a few of my family’s holiday recipes with you. 

INGREDIENTS

16 Tablespoons Softened Unsalted Butter

1 Cup Plus 6 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar

1 3/4 Cups Unbleached Flour

2 Cups Finely Chopped Pecans

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preheat your oven to 275 degrees.  In large-size bowl combine butter and 6 tablespoons powdered sugar.  Beat until fluffy.  Slowly add flour and beat until combined.  Stir in pecans and vanilla.  Shape dough into 3/4 inch balls.  Place on parchment paper lined baking sheets.  Place in oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.  Rotate baking sheets halfway through baking.  Remove from oven and transfer cookies to wire rack.  Let cool completely.  Pour remaining powdered sugar in a shallow dish.  Roll cookies in powdered sugar until completely coated.  Transfer to serving plate.  Makes about 4 dozen.
