Our family holidays are not complete with out a few of these.
Christmas Pecan Puffs
Cream ½ cup butter. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and 2 tablespoons sugar. Measure and then grind 1 cup of pecans. These may be chopped in the blender (fine grind). Sift, then measure 1 cup of flour. Stir pecans and flour into butter mixture. Roll the dough into small balls, they will grow in the oven. Place them in a slow oven at 300 degrees for 25 minutes. Roll the puffs while hot in confectionery sugar. When cold, roll again in confectionery sugar. Makes approximately thirty two 1 ½ inch cookies.
Edit - I'm making the "Just Ducky Noodles" tonight. It sounds so interesting. I could not find any rum or vodka for the raisins. So they are soaking in Amaretto.
