For the cookies: - Sticks butter - Sugar - Vanilla - Egg - Flour - Baking powder - Pecans
In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, using the whisk attachment, add the butter, sugar, vanilla, egg, and blend until light and fluffy.
In a separate bowl, add the flour, and baking powder, and stir well to blend. Add the flour a little at a time and mix on low to blend, until all the flour is added.
Continue to blend the cookie dough until it's completely blended and a smooth ball starts to form. Scrape down the mixing bowl as needed.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper, and roll the cookie dough into small balls, about 1 inch balls, and place the balls on the parchment paper.
