We've taken a traditional sugar cookie recipe, and added a twist with cinnamon, sugar, and pecans.
What You'll Need:
- 3/4 cup (1 ½ sticks) butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup sugar
What To Do:
In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat together butter and sugar. Add egg, vanilla, and salt; beat until smooth. Stir in pecans and flour and knead lightly until a soft dough forms. Divide dough in half, then wrap each half in wax paper to form a cylinder about 1-1/2-inches in diameter.
Refrigerate dough until firm, about 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices and arrange on baking sheets. Sprinkle cookie slices generously with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
- Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until light golden. Remove from baking sheets and place on wire racks to cool.

Before they're ready to be enjoyed our Mardi Gras Beignets are sprinkled with confectioners' sugar, just like they do in N'awlins!
