  • In the food processor, pulse the butter, remaining 1/3 cup granulated sugar and the vanilla until combined, scraping the bowl once or twice. Add the flour and pulse to combine. Stir into the pecan mixture.

  • Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 325 degrees . Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll 1 tablespoon dough into a ball, press a caramel into the center, then roll to enclose the caramel. Repeat with the remaining dough and caramels; place 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Bake until lightly colored, about 15 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes; coat with confectioners' sugar while warm. Coat again just before serving.
