Buttery and delicious pecan shortbread cookies coated in powered sugar. The perfect addition to your cookie boxes and holiday gatherings.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup softened vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1.5 tsp almond extract
  • 2 cups organic all purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups ground pecans
  • 1-2 cups organic powdered sugar for coating

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar with a hand or stand mixer.

  3. Mix in vanilla and almond extracts, flour, salt, and fold ground pecans. 

  4. The dough is going to be super crumbly but that's what you want. Cover dough and let it chill in the fridge for an hour. 

  5. Take about 1 inch size portions of the dough and form into balls. You will have to work the dough in your hand for a few seconds so it stays together. Press down slightly on each cookie just to keep them sturdy.

  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes. You DO NOT want them golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes before rolling them around in powdered sugar. 

  7. Once all cookies are done and cooled you can give them a good roll in powdered sugar. You can roll each cookie twice for extra quality coating. Serve and enjoy immediately or store in an air tight container at room temp.
