Makes about 36

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1 (9 oz) package chocolate kisses
powdered sugar

Beat together butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy. Add flour gradually until well blended. Stir in pecans. Chill dough about 1 hour. Pre-heat oven to 375 F. Mold about 1 tablespoon of dough around each chocolate kiss, covering candy completely. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet until they just turn golden around the edges, about 10-15 minutes. Let cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet. Cool on wire racks. When completely cool, dust with powdered sugar. Store in airtight container.

Would make this again.
Another note from me, the recipe poster/owner. This is a pretty standard pecan finger dough. It does NOT need eggs. And if your cookies are dry, you aren't using real butter or you are baking them too long. Hope this helps! 5 stars

This recipe needs to have eggs! The cookie dough came out as starch and it was very hard to mold the dough around the candy. In addition, when the cookies were baked, they were extremely dry and completely crumbled. 2 stars

Would make this again.
Recipe was rather easy for an adult to make, assembling the cookies was a bit difficult for a young child (we improvised and just had him put the kisses on top of the dough). They smell delicious and I am quite sure they will taste so as well!

Very tasty - not too sweet, little dry, but very good.
4 stars

This is my recipe and wanted to say thanks for all the good reviews.
And a note: do NOT use the caramel kisses, as they leak out and make a burnt mess on the cookie pan. I would only use solid kisses.
5 stars
