Brown Sugar Pecan Bites
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Powdered sugar for dusting, this is optional and I did not do it this time.
Cream butter, add brown sugar and vanilla. Mix well. In a separate bowl, sift flour and salt together. Add to creamed mixture. Stir in pecans.
Chill for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350
Take out the dough while the oven is heating up, so it is slightly easier to work with. Using the medium scoop, scoop out balls of dough and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned on the edges.
Cool on a wire rack. To make them fancier, dust with powdered sugar.
