  1. Preheat oven to 325°. In a bowl combine the flour, corn starch, and finely ground pecans. In the bowl of a mixer cream the sugar and the butter. Add the vanilla and the chopped pecans. Slowly add the flour mixture and combine to form a dough.
  2. Roll out the dough to approximately 3/8 of an inch in thickness on a well floured surface or a large Silpat and cut into rounds 2 – 2½ inches in diameter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet or one with a Silpat and bake for about 28 minutes until the edges are slightly browned. As soon as you remove them from the oven lightly sprinkle with Demerara sugar. Remove to a wire rack to cool. They will keep in an air tight container for a few weeks but don’t worry they’ll be eaten long before the expiration date.
