Recipe 2: Snowball Cookies

Prep & Cooking: 35 mts
Servings 30


butter-1 cup
vanilla extract -1 teaspoon
confectioners' sugar -6 tablespoons
all-purpose flour- 2 cups
chopped pecans -1 cup
confectioners' sugar for decoration -1/3 cup

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • In a medium bowl, cream butter and vanilla until smooth. Combine the 6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar and flour; stir into the butter mixture until just blended. Mix in the chopped walnuts. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and place them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. When cool, roll in remaining confectioners' sugar. I also like to roll mine in the sugar a second time.
