These little cookie balls fall into the “classics” category of that tin. They’re buttery and crumbly and ridiculously easy. I’m a little bit in love with them.
I was right in that they are like Mexican Wedding Cakes. They’re sweet, dense little pecan-speckled balls that are genius in their simplicity and utility. They are made of only four ingredients (five if you count the powdered sugar for dusting) and I doubt that there is an easier cookie out there to make.
The ease of these sweet little spheres makes them perfect for holiday cookie parties or bake sales… this recipe makes A LOT. They’re entirely too poppable though, and they’ll be gone before you know it. A light dusting of powdered sugar is just the thing to surround their buttery, crumbly center; it contrasts so well with the salty, nutty pecans. These Pecan Cookie Balls are a total winner, and I know I’ll be making them again and again throughout the years. This is definitely one to add to your own recipe box.
3 cups all-purpose flour
