Snowball Cookies
1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/4 teasoon salt
1/2 cup-1 cup chopped pecans
Cream butter in a large bowl. Add sugar cream until light. Stir in vanilla.Add flour and salt mix until blended. Stir in nuts. Shape into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake about 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven or until bottoms are golden(light brown) cool 10 minutes and roll in powdered sugar after they cool roll again. They look like little snow balls. I think they are best if you make them bite size between 1/2 and 1 inch. I also use a cookie scoop and it makes it very easy, just scoop and drop on your cookie sheet bake and roll and you are done. These go quickly so I always make two batches a few days apart.
~Merry Christmas~


  1. Mama always made these each year. Oddly, she rolled them out like "thumbs" and that is what she called them!!!! They are melt in your mouth delicious for sure.
    Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  2. I would have posted a picture but they were not baked yet and Autumn said we should post them here. There are also many varieties of this recipe. I have a picture now but don't know how to put it in this post.

  3. Thanks so much for putting this one on the blog Auntie Alice! I didn't have this recipe.
