In a large bowl, combine flour, nuts, sugar, salt and vanilla.
Add the butter and mix everything with your hands until you get a mixture that resembles coarse flour. Roll the dough into balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. While they are still warm but cool enough to handle, roll the cookies in powdered sugar.
Have you ever tried snowball cookies?Some call them Mexican wedding cookies or Russian tea cookies, but I prefer to call them snowball cookies. Plus, they look like a little snowball!
If you’ve never tried these cookies before, imagine a rich butter cookie filled with chopped pecans and rolled in powdered sugar. And yes, they are just as delicious as they sound.
One of the things I love about snowball cookies is how easy they are to make.To make these cookies you only need 6 ingredients and a bowl, and there is no need to refrigerate the dough. You can also replace the pecans with something else, like dried cranberries or even mini chocolate chips!
