Cream Cheese Finger Cookies

Even being a chocoholic, these cookies are my favorite ones on the plate this year. They are so good with coffee or well, by themselves. They’re just yummy! I don’t have a picture of the finished product for some reason but the dough is such a nice dough, I think that’s why I took a picture of that. Without further ado…

Cream Cheese Finger Cookies

1/2 C. butter (no substitute) softened

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 tsp. vanilla

1 3/4 C. flour

1 T. sugar

dash salt

1 C. finely chopped pecans

powdered sugar

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, sugar and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in pecans (dough may be crumbly). Shape tablespoonfuls (or use a cookie scoop) into 2-inch logs. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Roll warm cookies in powdered sugar and cool on wire racks.
