Pecan Fingers ~ One of the Best Cookies Ever1 min read

Sharing is caring!

Our family has made Pecan Fingers since I was a little girl.  Every year at Christmas my mother would make big batches to enjoy during the holidays and to give away to friends and neighbors. After all these years, they’re still our favorite!

Not too sweet and deliciously delicate

One of the best things about these cookies is that they’re not too sweet!  The dough itself is lightly sweetened.  Once the cookie comes out of the oven it’s rolled in powdered sugar to create a beautiful and perfectly sweetened treat.  

The texture of Pecan Fingers is so delicate, it’s hard to eat just one.  They’re so tender you  have to be careful taking them out of the container as they’re easily crushed.  But goodness, they are so worth it!  I promise you’ll just love these cookies!
