Snowballs from my book "Christmas Joy"
2 c all purpose flour
1 c unsalted butter
1/2 c sugar
1 T vanilla extract
1 c finely chopped pecans
3/4 c sifted powdered sugar
1. preheat oven to 325; butter 2 baking sheets. Onto a piece of wax paper, sift the flour and salt. In a medium-size bowl, with the mixer on high, cream the bitter and sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in vanilla.
2. Using wooden spoon, stir in the flour mixture, then the pecans. Dust your hands with a little powdered sugar and roll the dough into 1" balls. Place 2" apart on the baking sheets and bake 25 minutes or just until light brown.
3. Transfer to racks and cool for 15 minutes then roll in powdered sugar. Keep in airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Do not freeze.
In my opinion: These were good. they remind me of Pecan Sandies
