♥Quick 'n easy Pecan Toasties♥

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups toasted pecan pieces*

1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour
Directions

1. Place nuts in food processor container; cover. Process by pulsing with on/off action until paste forms (will appear grainy).

2. Add butter, sugars, baking soda, and baking powder; process until just combined. Add egg and vanilla; process until just combined. Add flour. Process by pulsing until just combined. Transfer to large bowl. Cover; refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour or until firm

3. Heat oven to 375 degrees.

4. Shape dough into 1 inch balls (or cookie scooper of your choice; Makes lovely mini cookies, too). Roll in additional granulated sugar. Place about 2 inches apart, on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with bottom of glass. I dip the glass in sugar in between each cookie to prevent sticking and for extra sugar sparkle.

5. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool on wire racks. Makes approximately 48 cookies.
