Orange Cocoa Sandies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 c confectioner's sugar, divided
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 c finely chopped pecans
1 teaspoon orange extract

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, beat the butter, flour, 1 cup confectioner's sugar, the cocoa, pecans, and extract for 2 to 3 minutes, or until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls about 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until set. Allow to cool slightly, then dust with the remaining 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar. Serve, or store in an air-tight container until ready to serve.

Yield: About 4 dozen cookies
