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.
