  • 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.

  • 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.

I did not have cake flour so I substituted 1.5 cups of flour plus 1/4 cup of corn starch. The cookies flattened out a bit while baking but I was still able to roll them in powdered sugar. I had to be delicate as they crumbled rather easily. Otherwise they were good and everyone seemed to like them. Read More

As far as taste goes. These are in point. I love these cookies cause they are so easy and simple. I traditionally make them with butter but I ve noticed that lactose hurts my stomach so looked for an alternative so I could make during the holidays. I too had issues with the cookies being crumbly. A couple of fixes: made a flax egg and added that to mixture and also cooled the cookies before baking so they wouldn t flatten out.:) Read More

I purchased a large jar of coconut oil and was looking for a recipe to use some of the surplus. The flavor was good but I found the dough a little crumbly. I added a few teaspoons of water to make the dough hold together but the cookies were very delicate even after cooling completely. Thanks for the inspiration! Read More
