So I’m in a wedding kind of mood, which is why I enjoy writing my Red Dirt Royalty series for Harlequin Desire. There’s always a Happy Ever After and a wedding. Except maybe this current book. 😉 Ha! Gotcha worried, right? Anyway, when looking around for recipes, I came across this one, which is one I’ve made because this is a favorite cookie.

What You Need
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar, divided
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup finely chopped PLANTERS Pecans
Let’s Make It
1 – Heat oven to 350°F.
2 – Beat butter, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour, beating on low speed after each addition until well blended. Add nuts; mix well.
3 – Shape dough into 48 (1-inch) balls. Place, 1-1/2 inches apart, on baking sheets.
4 – Bake 14 to 15 min. or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool 5 min. on baking sheets. Roll warm cookies, 1 at a time, in remaining sugar in small bowl until evenly coated; place on wire racks. Cool completely.
Tip 1 – Make it Easy: Use a blender or food processor to finely chop the nuts. Just be careful not to overprocess them or you’ll end up with nut butter!
Tip 2 – How to Store: Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.
CLICK HERE to get all the nutritional info. Normally, this is where I’d feature a cover and a character from one of my books. But all my books have Happy Ever Afters (or Happy For Nows) so you can click on my book list and pick any of my books to read. Why do I write romance? Because 36 years ago, I married my best friend and found my own HEA. Wanna see what we looked like back then? I’ll never see that size 3 wedding dress again but hey, he still loves me so it’s all good. 😀
