These are so Yummy! I don't know why they are called "Wedding Cookies", but they are light and airy and sweet. I'm not the best baker, but these are easy to make. It is a recipe from Trisha Yearwood.
- 2 ¼ C. all-purpose flour
- 1/8 t. salt
- 1 C. (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1 C. powdered sugar
- 2 t. vanilla extract
- ½ C. pecans, finely chopped
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- In a small bowl, combine the sifted flour, and salt.
- In a large bowl, beat the butter, ¼ C. of the powdered sugar, and vanilla with a mixer.
- Add the flour mixture about ½ C. at a time.
- Mix until the flour is incorporated.
- Stir in the chopped pecans, by hand.
- Roll the cookie dough into 1 inch balls, then roll into a tube and create a crescent.
- Place each on a cookie sheet.
- Bake for 20 minutes, or until slightly brown on edges but still pale on the top.
- Remove the cookies from the oven, and then transfer to a cooling rack.
- When cookies are cooled, roll them in the ¾ C. of powdered sugar.
- Store in an air-tight container.
