Pecan Snowball Cookies 

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 25 minutes



  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • powdered sugar


Preheat your oven to 350ºF.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter until smooth. Add in flour, pecans, 1/4 cup powdered sugar, milk and vanilla and stir until a dough forms.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place 1-inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until lightly browned, about 20-25 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes then roll in powdered sugar. Let cool completely and role in powdered sugar again.


If your dough seems a little soft chill it for 1 hour before baking.

Make sure to roll in powdered sugar once the cookies are cooled so the powdered sugar sticks.
