Pecan Crescent Cookies

Another recipe from our new "Taste of Home Baking Book."  This melt in your mouth, delicious, buttery cookie is from Grace Yaskovic.  Although this recipe calls for pecans we didn't have any on hand so they are a plain butter cookie yet still worthy of five stars.

Pecan Crescent Cookies

1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup finely chopped pecans
powdered sugar

In mixing bowl cream the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.  Gradually add the flour.  At first this will be like a fine flour that won't stick together.  Keep mixing them and it will transform into a nice, soft dough that will be easy to shape into the crescent shapes.  Bake at 325 degrees until they become very light brown around 22-25 minutes.  Let cool for a few minutes and roll in powdered sugar.
