Mexican Tea Cakes

  • sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 Cups  confectioners sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon  vanilla
  • 2 1/4 Cups  all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 Cups  very finely chopped pecans (2 1/2 oz)
  • 3/4 Teaspoons  salt
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup very finely chopped pecans (2 1/2 oz)

You might be tempted to bake 2 sheets at a time in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Don't give in to this urge—they must go in the middle of the oven to cook through and brown evenly.
