I've been making a version of this nut cookie for years. Today I used almonds instead of pecans because they are what I had in the cabinet. I made a half batch, and it fit easily in my mini food processor. I chilled the dough for a couple of hours and then rolled and baked the cookies. I skipped the powdered sugar bath at the end. I guess, really, these are almond powder(less) puffs.
These are not at all photogenic.
While this was a yummy cookie, it won't replace my favorite pecan crescent recipe. Thank you Tia of Buttercream Barbie for hosting this week!
