Snowballs Cookies

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.

    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. )
