Maple Pecan Tea Cookies

Maple Pecan Tea Cookies
Maple Pecan Tea Cookies

Maple Pecan Tea Cookies are infused with maple extract and loads of chopped pecans. Crescent shaped or in ball form, these cookies have just a touch of sweetness with a light + buttery texture just like a traditional tea cookie should be! Dusted with powdered sugar, these cookies always get a spot on the holiday cookie tray. So easy to make and can be made ahead of time which makes them ideal for cookie exchanges too.

Makes18 balls

Preparation Time10 min

Chilling Time45 min

Cooking Time12 min

Cooking Vessel Sizebaking sheet


  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 cup flour, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple extract
  • 1 cup butter, room temp
  • powdered sugar (to roll in after baking)
  1. Give the softened butter and maple extract a mix in medium bowl.

  2. Blend all the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and add to the butter and maple extract. Mix until soft clumps form and start to stick together.

  3. Form dough into 1-2" balls and place onto ungreased baking sheets.

  4. Chill the dough balls for 45 min. Chilling them helps keep the round shape.

  5. Bake at 400F for 12-15 min.

  6. Let cool slightly, then roll in powdered sugar while still warm.
