Snowball Cookies // White {A Year of Color #1}

Snowball Cookies // White {A Year of Color #1}
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?)
Snowball Cookies // White {A Year of Color #1}
Snowball Cookies
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!

  3. I love these!!! I laughed when I saw your post, because I almost went for a similar snowball cookie recipe for my post!

  4. Oh how fun are these! I would never think to make snowball cookies, but they are perfect. I should make these and tell Mason we made them out of snow. That's the closest to "snow" he's ever been to! LOL.
    I meant to link up with you guys today, but I totally forgot to write down the dates! Darn it. I'll have to jot them down now for next month!

  5. I have everything I need for these. Maybe I'll make a batch this weekend.

  6. Oh my gosh, it TOTALLY pours when it rains! Ugh, I'm sorry you guys were all so ill, but these cookies look awesome!

    I'm definitely going to have to make these for my hubby! He will love them!

  10. I have ALWAYS wanted to make these. Now I think I have to!

  11. I love these type of cookies, but have never made them myself. Will have to try!

  12. I LOVE these! I haven't made them in a few years, but seriously need to whip some up. I also like to substitute the pecans for almonds and vanilla for almond extract. Equally delicious!

  13. I love these cookies but surprisingly, I've never made them! I need to change that ASAP!
