So, I really have no idea what these cookies are called. Snowballs. Russian tea cakes. Mexican Wedding Cakes. They’re super simple and tasty though.
If you need to bring a treat to a holiday party, these won’t take too much time!
– 1 cup (2 stick) of butter
– 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, plus a bunch of powdered sugar to coat the cookies
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla
– 2 and 1/4 cups flour
– A pinch of salt
– 1 cup pecan chips
Bring your butter to room temperature and then cream it.
Add in the 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and the vanilla.
Mix together the flour, salt and pecan chips before slowly adding it to the butter/sugar.
Mix it all together. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Take a scooper to measure out equal rounds. So they don’t have a flat bottom, roll them in your palms. I used a larger scoop and got just over 24 cookies. You can use a smaller scoop to get more. Bake them for about 15 minutes.
Let the cookies settle on the pan for about 5 minutes. While they are still hot, roll them in powdered sugar. I fill the bottom of a larger tuperware and used my hands to roll the cookie around and cover the cookies with the sugar. Set them aside to cool and then coat them again. Yum!
