Serves 36 | 

The perfect amount of sweet and nutty.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup toasted pecan pieces
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1 egg yolk
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. Place pecans and sugar in a blender, pulse until pecans are finely ground.
  2. Place butter and pecan-sugar mixture in a mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to cream together until butter is fluffy. Add vanilla, orange peel and egg yolk and beat together on low speed until combined.
