2 sticks unsalted butter

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cups ground pecans

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp salt


Cream 2 sticks of butter with 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Add Vanilla, Pecans, Salt and Flour. Mix until blended smooth. Refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours. Using a melon baller, scoop out balls to 1 inch width. Place on parchment paper and bake for 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees. (bottoms should be golden brown). While cooked snowballs are still warm, roll in powdered sugar.

Makes 25-30.
