How to Make Pecan Crescents
- Pulse pecans in a food processor until they are coarse like sand.
- Beat butter and 3/4c. powdered sugar at medium speed until creamy. Stir in vanilla and ground pecans. Gradually add flour, beating until a soft dough forms. Beat at low speed just until combined. Cover and chill 1 hour.
- Divide dough into 5 portions: divide each portion into 12 pieces. Roll dough pieces into 2 inch logs, curving ends to form crescents. Place on ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake at 350 degrees fir 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes. Roll warm cookies in powdered sugar. Cool completely
