Pecan Cookies - Slice and Bake

December 09, 2019

Yield:

Prep time: 15

Chill Time:  4 Hours

Cook Time:  10

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1 cup chopped pecans, toasted

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups flour

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 cup turbinado sugar

 

Instructions

Beat the butter and the powdered sugar at medium speed until creamy and no lumps are visible.  Stir in the toasted pecan pieces and the vanilla.

 

In another bowl, whisk the flour and baking powder together.  On low speeds, add the flour mixture to the butter mixture.

 

Turn out the dough onto a floured board, and shape into 2 logs.  Wrap the logs in plastic wrap or wax paper and refrigerate for 4 hours.

 

Preheat the oven to 350, and with baking sheets lined with parchment, beat the egg.  Place the sugar into a bowl.  Take your logs, open the plastic, and brush the logs with the beaten egg, then roll into the sugar.  Cut the logs into 1/3 inch slices, place one inch apart and bake for 10-12 minutes.    Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes
