Wedding Tea Cookies
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups powdered sugar, divided
Beat together butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at moderately high-speed until pale and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Beat in vanilla, add flour, pecans, and salt and mix at low-speed until just combined. Chill, covered, at least 6 hours.
Preheat oven to 375F. Let dough stand at room temperature until just pliable, about 15 minutes. Roll teaspoons of dough into 3/4-inch balls and arrange about 2 inches apart on lightly buttered large baking sheets. Sift remaining 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar into a large shallow bowl.
Bake in batches in middle of oven until bottoms are pale golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately transfer hot cookies to powdered sugar, gently rolling to coat well, then transfer to a rack to cool completely. Roll cookies in powdered sugar again when cooled.
