Pecan Balls

Pecan Balls

Submitted by Jeanne Anderson

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature (do not substitute)
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups pecans, chopped very fine ( I used a food processor and measure before chopping- do not substitute with walnuts)
  • 2 cups cake flour unsifted (do not substitute)
  • 2 cups or more powdered sugar sifted into cereal-sized bowls
  1. In a mixer, combine butter, sugar, and vanilla and cream together.
  2. Add finely chopped pecan and mix.
  3. Add cake flour and mix well.
  4. Chill slightly for easier handling
  5. Roll dough into one-inch balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 300º for 35-40 minutes. Do not brown.
  7. Immediately roll in powdered sugar twice while still hot. Cool & enjoy.
