Pecan balls

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Finely chopped pecans
2 tablespoons Sugar
⅛ teaspoon Salt
1 cup Flour
½ cup Real butter; softened, not melted
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Mix everything together, and knead to make a large ball. Roll pieces of the dough between your hands to make small balls. Place about aninch totwo inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and while hot coat with about 1cup of powdered sugar. Set aside, allowto cool. Coat in powdered sugar again. Make sure to store these in an air-tight container ... moisture causes them to mush ..Makes about 20 balls.

NOTES: The trick to making these wonderful, Is to chopthe pecans VERYsmall.

Iusually buy the cookie pecan pieces at the store, andthen chopthemeven more in a food processor.
