The Best Pecan Crescent Cookies
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 Tablespoon water
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup very finely chopped pecans see note below
- confectioners sugar to cover completed cookies
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl, cream the butter and confectioners sugar. Add in the vanilla extract and water. Mix in the flour and salt, blend well. Add in the finely ground pecans.
- Form the dough into 2-inch crescents and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 20 minutes. Cookies should be lightly brown when complete. Remove from oven and let cool about 5 minutes. Place cookies on the cooling wrap completely cool.
- Roll cookies in confectioners sugar. Keep cookies in a covered container.
- Be sure to finely ground the pecans in the food processor. You do not want large chunks of pecans in your cookies.
- These cookies can be frozen after step 2.
- Once the cookies are defrosted, then roll in confectioners sugar to serve.
- Nutritional value is estimated as ingredients and size of portions can vary.
