Snow Ball Cookies


1 cup butter, room temp

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
powdered sugar (for rolling cookies in)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Add flour and salt and stir to combine. Fold in chopped nuts.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Placed on greased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 min. Remove from oven and roll in powdered sugar while still warm. Roll in sugar again when cool.

I believe the real name for these is wedding cookies. I've never had or seen these at a wedding. We call them snowball cookies. That is what they look like, after all...

Again, a very easy recipe. You do have to plan ahead a little and take your butter out of the fridge early in the day (as with any cookie recipe...this step really does make a HUGE difference.)
