These are a variation of recipes I have seen for Mexican Wedding Cookies or Russian Tea Cakes. My Mom made these every Christmas-regardless of the name, they are delicious bite sized treats!

How to Make Pecan Fingers

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper or grease the cookie sheets.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bow. Mix well. Form dough into 1" fingers or balls.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes (depending on your oven). Let cool 5-7 minutes, then roll cookies in powdered sugar to coat while still warm. Note: I usually roll them twice to get good coverage. Store in covered container in a cool place.
