These Snowball Cookies transport me back to my childhood. They definitely rank in the top 5 favorite cookies for me, which is saying a lot because I seem to make cookies every other day.
Servings 24 cookies
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups finely diced pecans
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- Powdered sugar for rolling
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Add the butter, flour, pecans, and granulated sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on low speed until well combined. Scrape the bowl as needed.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. The dough will be very crumbly but should come together in your hands as you roll.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
Cool on the pan for 5 minutes and then roll in the powdered sugar.
Store tightly covered for up to 5 days.
