2  egg yolks
1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour, sifted
1/2 cup pecan pieces, chopped very fine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and egg yolks. Add 1/2 cup of the confectioner’s sugar, vanilla extract, and sifted flour. Stir in pecan pieces.

Roll batter into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake until bottoms are lightly browned, about 12 to 15 minutes.

Cool on cooling rack, then roll in remaining confectioner’s sugar to coat.
