Cookies made with pecans, and rolled into powdered sugar so they look like snowballs. They are one of my favorites, and go perfectly with the Hallmark Northpole toys.
- 1 cup softened butter

- 1 cup pecans ground up

- 2 cups all-purpose flour
Cream together butter, 3/4 cup powdered sugar and vanilla in a stand mixer
Grind up the pecans into a fine mixture. *I used my food processor, but a blender would work well too.

Roll into balls
Bake at 350 for 14 minutes
Remove from oven, let cool 1-2 minutes, then roll in remain 1/2 cup powdered sugar
