Dear Renee,

These are called allkinds of cookies -we got in the habit of calling them Santa's Snowballs for fun! SO EASY to make, we have the kids and their friends do it!!! I think this recipe came from Betty Crocker  long ago - but here is what I have written down:

1 cup butter softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2  or to taste cup finely chopped pecans

pinch of salt

LOTS of Powdered sugar

Heat oven to 325ºF.

Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and the vanilla in large bowl. Stir in flour, nuts and salt until dough holds together.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set but not brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool slightly on wire rack.

Roll warm cookies in powdered sugar; cool on wire rack. Roll in powdered sugar again.

Merry Christmas from the Welles Family in Granby!!! We love what you do for the animals!!!
