Soft, pillowy mounds of heaven. A sweet almond, pecan cookie coated with powdered sugar. The ultimate, classic holiday cookie.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Stir in flours, pecans, and almond extract until a soft dough forms. Taking 2 tbsp of dough at a time, roll into balls. Space evenly on baking sheet. Bake for 22 min.
Carefully, while still warm, roll balls in powdered sugar. Transfer to a wire cooling rack (that is on top of a baking sheet).
