1 & 3/4 cups powdered sugar, divided
3 & 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 & 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted


1. Preheat oven tpo 350 degrees. Lightly coat baking sheets.
2. Beat butter and 1 cup of the powdered sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add the flour and cornstarch, mixing well. Stir in nuts.
3. Roll dough into 1 " balls, and place 2" apart on baking sheets. Flatten balls slightly with the bottom of a glass.
4. Bake 13 minutes, or until centers are set, then cool on baking sheets 5 minutes. Add warm cookies, 1 at a time, to remaining powdered sugar, turning evenly to coat. Cool on wire racks.
