Line rimless baking sheets with parchment paper or grease; set aside.

In large bowl, beat butter with 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the sugar until fluffy; beat in vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, pecans, allspice and salt ; stir into butter mixture until blended.

Working with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the dough at a time, shape into 2-inch (5 cm) logs. Pinch ends to taper; turn in slightly to form crescent. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on prepared pans.

Bake in centre of 325°F (160°C) oven until bottoms are golden, about 15 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack for 5 minutes.

Pour remaining icing sugar into shallow dish; press cookies into sugar to coat. Let cool completely on racks. Dust with remaining icing sugar. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and store for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 weeks.)
