  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix cake flour, pecans, coconut oil, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until mixture comes together and forms a soft dough. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and arrange 2 inches apart on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the bottoms of the cookies are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • As an optional step, you can roll the cookies in confectioners' sugar while the cookies are still warm.
