These incredible little biscuits are another perfect addition to your Christmas gift baskets and hampers and also look beautiful stored in a glass jar on the kitchen counter; oh if pecan nuts aren’t your thing, not to worry, you can replace them with your favourite.
Pecan Nut Biscuits

60ml icing sugar
5ml vanilla essence
- Preheat the oven to 180˚C.
- Finely chop ¼ of the nuts, reserving the remainder.
- Cream the butter and icing sugar and vanilla essence until light and fluffy.

- Allow to cool then dust with icing sugar.

I can’t wait to try these. I am a huge fan of pecans and have 1/2 kilo just sitting around waiting for ideas. Thanks!
Think you could make a coupe of batches with 1/2 kilo – yippee 🙂
No egg, I love it!!!
And so easy – perfect 😀
These look gorgeous and pecans are one of my favourites so no substituting for me 🙂
Wonder if you will be like me then and say “Oh, I will have just one more!” Funny though how 1 more always seems to land up being 2 more – oops.
