Pecan and vanilla flavor


3/4 cup ground pecans

1 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/4 cup cake flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

extra powdered sugar


Stir together pecans, butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and vanilla, mix well.
Sift flour and
salt, stir into nut mixture. Chill.
Roll into 1-inch balls, then roll each ball
3 times in the
extra powdered sugar.
Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 F until
set but
not brown.

Variation: Frosty Snowballs

When you roll the cookies in powdered sugar, you divide the powdered sugar into
or four bowls. Then, you take three or four different colors of edible glitter
and mix one
color glitter into each of the bowls. Then when you roll the cookies in the
sugar, they turn
out all shiny and sparkly like a Christmas ornament, but they're edible.
