Christmas Cookies #1 - Pecan Sandies

I love Christmas cookies! These pecan sandies are so easy, you will have no stress and all smiles putting them together. Better yet, get the kids in on it! 

1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Powdered sugar for decorating

Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla, flour, and pecans, stir until well combined into a stiff dough. (I used my hands for that step - easier!) Chill for half an hour. Preheat oven to 350. Divide dough into 12 portions and roll each portion into a ball, flatten slightly with your hands, and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then roll in powdered sugar or dust the tops. 
More cookies to come. Enjoy. :)
