Prep Time – 20 mins. Cook Time – 30 mins. Servings – About 20 pieces
1 cup salted butter, room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
Heat oven to 325 F. With a mixer, cream butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar and mix well. Add vanilla. Gradually add flour and mix until combined. Add pecans and mix briefly to combine.
Press dough evenly into the bottom of a ungreased 9-by-13-inch baking dish. If the mixture is too sticky, cover with wax paper and use the wax paper to press flat.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and use a pizza cutter to cut into squares. Allow to cool in the pan before removing. Store in an airtight container.
