Snowball Pecan Cookies


The perfect Holiday cookie…not too sweet but oh so buttery with pecans in each bite!
feel free to Follow me
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
1 1/2 cups powder sugar
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
Each cookie is 6 WW Smart Points
