Snowball Cookies

I love these cookies. I make them every year. My Grandma used to make them as a kid and for some reason they are linked in my head with the song "For we need a little Christmas right this very moment. We need...." Walmart is using that song in one of their commercials this year and every time it comes on, I crave these cookies. Oh, and you better believe they are definitely fattening and only for once a year! Time to go buy Walmart. :o)



A favorite at Christmas time, pecan-filled cookies are scrumptious all year 'round.

Preparation time: 45 min Baking time: 18 min
Yield: 3 dozen cookies
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 mixer bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until well mixed (2 to 3 minutes).

Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 18 to 25 minutes or until very lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes; roll in powdered sugar while still warm and again when cool.
