Pecan Butterball Cookies

The powdered sugar coating, the crumbly texture, the homegrown pecans…these cookies are a delight any time of the year.

Delicious, melt in your mouth cookies that reminds me of snowballs. The powdered sugar coating, the crumbly texture, the homegrown pecans…these cookies are a delight any time of the year.

Also known as Mexican or Italian wedding cookies, Russian tea cakes, or snowballs cookies, we call these pecan butterballs in our family. They are also perfect holiday cookies and easy to whip up for your next cookie exchange party.

These buttery cookies are filled with toasted pecans and rolled in powdered sugar. No one can eat just one! Yes they are that good.

What makes our cookies so wonderful is the pecans are right from the tree. My mother is lucky enough to have friends who harvest pecans right in their backyard. Of course not everyone is as lucky.
