Lady Finger Cookies

These are my favorite simple shortbread cookies for holidays or everyday snack.

1 stick butter, softened
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup flour
1.5 tsp vanilla extract (be sure to use a good brand)
chopped pecans
powered sugar (icing sugar)

1) Combine butter and sugar.
2) Add vanilla, then flour, then pecans.
3) Shape into bars about 2 to 3 inches long
4) Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 425 for 10 to 13 minutes. Make sure cookie sheet is clean and no stains from previous cooking
5) While warm, roll in powdered sugar. This is tricky because they break very easily. I sprinkled sugar on a pan and then put them on the pan and sprinkled sugar on top again.  Let them cool a coupl eminutes before rolling to help them firm up a little bit.
6) Let them cool overnight and store away for delicious snack
