Welcome to the first link up of A Year of Color! I am so excited to see how everyone is inspired by each month's color. January is all about white and I went the easy route with a recipe ;) Enter, Snowball Cookies!
Let me start off by saying we survived the plague this last week so I feel wayyyy behind on life. Whatever Kinsey picked up from school traveled to Brielana and then to Brian and myself all in the span of two days! I'll spare you all the details but I have never felt so wiped out before. Thankfully this little recipe is so easy to throw together! And a sweet treat is always much appreciated.
My favorite recipe generator seems to not want to work for me anymore so forgive the plain text. (When it rains, it pours, no?)
also known as Italian Wedding Cookies
adapted from Land O'Lakes
2 cups flour
2 cups finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 325 F
Combine all ingredients except powdered sugar until well mixed.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place onto ungreased baking sheet about 1-inch apart.
Bake 18-25 minutes until very lightly browned.
Let cool 5 minutes before rolling cookies in powdered sugar. And once again after completely cooling.
So easy and so delicious!
