Ingredients
  • 125g pecans
  • 250g butter
  • 350g (2⅓ cups) plain flour
  • 1 tblsp caster sugar
  • 1 cup (or so) icing sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 160C and have two baking trays ready to go
  2. Blitz the pecans in a food processor
  3. Add all the other ingredients except the icing sugar and blitz until it all comes together
  4. Roll little half-thumb sized balls of dough into a little log then press in the middle to make into a crescent. Don't be precious about this, mine always end up looking more like little logs than crescents
  5. Place on baking trays, they don't spread so you can put them quite close to each other
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes until they're light brown
  7. When cool roll in the icing sugar (to be honest I never measure the icing sugar)
  8. Store in a container and pour over a bit more icing sugar.
  9. Try not to eat 10 at a time.
