Buttery Pecan Snowball Cookies

I’m excited to share this snowball cookie recipe with you. These super delicious cookies have always been a favorite in my family and I’ve been baking them since I was a kid. These are the best snowball cookies! How do I know? Maybe because they melt in your mouth, or maybe because they’re packed full of crushed pecans sprinkled over the top. Whichever – we love these cookies! There’s never any leftover when these are around.

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

  • 1 cup powdered sugar for dusting

Instructions:

  1. Butter and powdered sugar are creamed together in a stand mixer. Mix in the salt, vanilla, flour, and pecans on low.
  2. Make one-inch balls out of the dough. Place a few inches of the mixture on parchment-lined baking sheets.
