This has been a wonderful weekend! Friday night, we went to my faculty Christmas party! As I have stated before, I am so thankful for the amazing friends I teach with and my incredible school! Every year at Thanksgiving/Christmas, I am even more appreciative of being blessed with such a great job! This year, I brought Texas Trash and Pecan Nougat Cookies to the party!
Nate has loved eating these cookies for breakfast with his coffee (and they didn't last very long)!! :-)
1 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups finely ground nuts of your choice (I’m using pecans)
Cream butter, sugar, and salt until fluffy. Add flour and vanilla, mix well, scraping down sides as needed. Add nuts and mix until well incorporated. Shape into one inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 325 for twenty minutes, but don’t let them brown.Cool cookies. When cooled, roll in confectioner’s sugar.
