Ingredients

    1 cup butter
    1/2 cup splenda
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    2 cup flour
    1 cup chopped pecans
    1/2 cup powdered sugar or melted chocolate chips

Directions

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla with mixer until light and fluffy.

Add flour gradually until blended thoroughly.

Stir in chopped pecans.

Chill dough in refrigerator for 30 - 45 minutes, to make it easier to shape (but not required).

Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets in 1 of 4 ways:
-- shape into small cookie balls
-- shape into small cookie balls & press fork down on top to flatten
-- shape into crescent shapes
-- shape into log shapes

Bake in 325 deg. oven (pre-heated) for 20 - 22 minutes.

Cool cookie trays on a cooling rack.

For variety:
-- leave some cookies plain.
-- roll some cookies in powdered sugar.
-- melt chocolate chips in microwave (30 seconds on low power) and dip edge of cookie(s) into melted chocolate and let sit on cookie sheet until chocolate hardens.

These are great for cookie exchanges, because you can make them look like 4 different recipes. :)

Very yummy and you'll never even realize the difference by using splenda.
