Wedding Cookies

Christmas desserts are a tradition in many homes, but none is as special to the people of Twilight as cookies. Wedding Cookies are one of the townspeople’s favorite. I hope you enjoy this recipe.  Be careful, if you bake these; you may find yourself in a wedding of your own.  May your Christmas wishes and dreams of love come true.

Happy Baking.

Wedding Cookies 
2 cups flour, sifted
½ cup powdered sugar
1 cup pecans, finely chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick of butter, softened
1 tablespoon ice water
1 cup powdered sugar for coating

Mix together flour, sugar, and nuts. Add vanilla. Cut in butter. If too crumbly, add water, so that the dough sticks together. Shape into 1 ½ inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350’ for 12 minutes. Cool on wire rack and dredge in powdered sugar until well coated.
