Published: Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 14:09 PM.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, pecans, powdered sugar, and salt. Stir in vanilla. With pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Gently knead dough until it begins to hold together. Roll dough into ¾ (three quarter) inch balls and place 1 ½ (one and one half) inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes on wire rack, then roll in powdered sugar and cool completely. Roll in additional sugar before serving.
