Buttery Pecan Snowball Cookies


Ingredients :

Cookie :

1 cup butter, softened

2/3 cup powder sugar

1/2 tsp salt

3 tsp vanilla

3 tbsp cornstarch

2 cups flour

5 oz chopped pecans

Coating :

1 1/2 cups powder sugar

Instructions :

Preheat oven to 350

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, set aside

In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment beat butter until creamy, 30-45 seconds

Slowly add in powder sugar and salt mixing until just combined

Drizzle in vanilla, mixing until combined


Scrape down sides and sprinkle cornstarch & flour evenly over cookie batter and then mix until well combined

Fold in pecans, mixing until well distributed

Roll cookies into 1 in balls and place onto baking sheets

Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until cookies are just browned on the bottom (mine were perfect at 17 minutes)

While cookies are baking place remaining powder sugar in large bowl

Remove cookies from oven and let cool for 3-4 minutes and then roll in powder sugar

Place coated cookies onto cooling rack to cool completely

Once cooled roll in powder sugar again if you so desire, I prefer only rolling once in powder sugar but it is up to you
