    Pecan Snowball Cookies Recipe

    Pecan Snowball Cookies Recipe

    Upon discovering that I am no longer allergic to pecans last month, I started keeping an eye out for yummy pecan recipes. While perusing Christmas cookies, I came across a recipe for almond snowball cookies. Because of my new love of pecans, I modified the recipe to fit my tastes. The results were quite yummy, and I have a new cookie to add to my Christmas collection.

    • 1/2 cup of sugar
    • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
