These cookies have so many different names for them... Mexican Tea Cookies, Wedding Cookies, Pecan Balls, etc...but because it's Christmas, we'll name them Snowballs!
My kids loved these cookies when they were younger. They would hold their breath when they took a bite so they wouldn't blow powdered sugar everywhere if they breathed through their nose. But of course, if they did, it was just as funny every time!
1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 t. vanilla extract
1 T water
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans (I used pecan bits)
With an electric mixer on medium speed, blend together butter and powdered sugar; add vanilla, water and flour.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from oven. While cookies are still hot, roll in additional powdered sugar. When cool, roll again in powdered sugar. Makes 3 dozen.
Now, don't they look yummy?
