Rice Krispies Crunch Cookies

1 lb butter

1 1/4 c sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

4 c flour

1 c pecans, chopped fine

3 c Rice Krispies

Cream butter and sugar. Beat in vanilla. Stir in flour. Stir in pecans. Fold in Rice Krispies. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Plop tablespoon-sized balls (use #50 disher) onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with fingers to 1/4" thickness. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from sheets and cool completely on rack. Makes 76 cookies.

If you prefer smaller cookies (silver dollar size), use #60 disher (makes 102 cookies) and shorten baking time by 1-2 minutes.
