Preparation / Directions:
Kids love to make cocoons. They are fun to make. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, place flour, 2/3 cup powdered sugar, and pecans.
Mix thoroughly. Add margarine and mix thoroughl with hands. Lightly oil 2 large baking sheets. In amounts of 1-1/2 tablespoons, mold dough into cocoon or oval shapes by hand. Place cookies on baking sheets. Bake in a 350 oven for 30 minutes or until bottoms are light brown. Do not overcook.
When cookies are done, cool completely. Pour remaining 2/3 cup powdered sugar into a plastic bag. Drop 5 to 6 cookies at a time into the bag and toss. When cookies are completely covered with sugar, place on platter and serve.
