The recipe below is a favorite of Tien Hsi, a very dear relative, who will make these cookie for all the Christmases that i have been here. She shared the recipe with me and i am sharing it with all of you. Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace, love and goodwill to all. But with all the stress and commotion of the season, many of us end up feeling more like Mr. Scrooge than Santa Claus.
1/2 lb butter
3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1/2 lb chopped pecans
2 cups all-purpose flour

Cream butter, add in sugar, flour, pecans and vanilla.
