2 sticks butter 2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar 1/2 tsp salt
2 cups finely chopped pecans 2 tsp vanilla
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Sift flour with the salt and add to the creamed mixture, blending thoroughly. Add pecans and mix well. For better results, place dough on a sheet of plastic wrap, shape into a square and refrigerate a few hours. Shape into 1" balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a slow oven...325, for about 20 minutes, or until JUST starting to brown. Cool, then roll in powdered sugar. If you would like to make the snowballs chocolate, add 1/4 cup cocoa to the dough and bake as directed. Bon appetit!
