Danish Wedding Cookies 

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 12 minutes



  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar for dusting


Preheat your oven to 400ºF and grease a cookie sheet.

In a large bowl combine the flour and cinnamon. Set aside.

In another large bowl add the butter, pecans, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract, and beat until blended. Batter will be very stiff.

Using your hands, roll 1-inch balls and place on the cookie sheet. Bake until light brown, about 10-12 minutes. Cool slightly then roll cookies in the powdered sugar. Cool completely before serving.


These cookies over bake easily so keep a close eye on them.

Taste familiar? These little cookies are a copy cat recipe of the Keebler cookie.
