Sand Tarts (Lenny’s Favorite Cookie)


1 cup butter

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

2 cups sifted cake flour

1 cup chopped pecans

1 tsp. vanilla

dash of salt

Confectioners sugar

In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, cream butter and 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar. Mix in flour, pecans, vanilla and salt. Roll into balls or shape into crescents. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 20 minutes, or until very lightly browned. While cookies are still warm (but not hot), roll in additional confectioners’ sugar and finish cooling on wire racks
