  2. Using a food processor finely chop pecans, set aside.
  3. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar on low until smooth. Add in the almond extract, beat. 
  4. Slowly add in the flour.
  5. Add in the pecans.
  6. Dust hands with flour and roll about a tablepoon of dough into round balls.
  7. Place on the cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart.
