Snowball Cookies

a.k.a. Mexican Wedding Cookies

1 cup butter, at room temperature*

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup finely chopped pecans

Additional powdered sugar


Using an electric mixer, cream together butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth and creamy. Slowly add flour then pecans and mix until combined.


Roll into 1-inch balls and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 275 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until cookies just start to brown on the bottom.


Remove cookies from oven and immediately roll in additional powdered sugar. Once cool, store in an airtight container.


*as with all of my recipes, use real, salted butter.
