Introduction: Snowballs Cookies

About: I love to bake and cook..Started my own little baking show on facebook and youtube.

I make these with Pecans, but you can use walnuts or even with no nuts. Really simple recipe with only a few ingredients.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar

Heat oven to 325°F. Combine all ingredients except powdered sugar in large bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until well mixed.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 18-25 minutes or until very lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes; roll in powdered sugar while still warm and again when cool.

    These are not Mexican wedding cookies. These taste like powdered sugar coated biscuits.

    Oh yum! These were some of my favorites growing up.

    Tasty! I like that you put in you can make them with no nuts. I'm not a nut fan and I always feel like I'm breaking a rule if I want to make something without nuts :)

    They call them Mexican Wedding Cookies without the nuts. These are always a hit around the holidays, but I always get requests to make them all year long. Enjoy!

    Also called Russian teatarts.. Christmas tradition for us, along with hermits. ( the cookies, not creepy old guys we drag down from the hills. )
