For some reason I get the feeling I'm on a caramel kick! hmm
Well the story behind this cute and yummy cookie is simple. Everyone seems to LOVE the Mexican Wedding Cookie or the Italian Wedding Cookie or Russian Tea Cakes...I didn't mind them, but they weren't a favorite by any means...so I thought I'd play with it and try to please everyone AND me...
This is what I came up with I hope you will like it.
You could half this recipe I would think...when I create the batches get on the larger side :)

Ingredients

2 c
butter, softened
1 1/2 c
powdered sugar
2 tsp
vanilla
4 c
flour
1 1/2 c
pecans, finely chopped
powdered sugar for rolling
RASPBERRY CARAMEL
1/2 c
brown sugar
1/4 c
heavy cream
1/2 c
raspberry enlightment from penzys or smuckers raspberry all fruit, with seeds removed, just run syrup/jam through a sieve to remove seeds, using a spatula to push through if need be :)
1 c
powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, cream butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. combine flour and pecans; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
2

Pecan Sandies or Wedding Cookies are both my son and daughter's favorites. Now they've been upgraded. I hope the soggy towel has dried by now ladies.
