Mexican Wedding Cookies

 Melt-in-your-mouth celebration cookies!

What you'll need:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup finely chopped pecans
2 cups flour

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter, vanilla, and 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar with electric mixture on medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually add pecans and flour, mixing on low speed until well blended.

2. Shape dough into 1" balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet 1-1/2" apart.

3. Bake 14 to 16 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet. 

4. Roll warm cookies in remaining 1/2 cup powdered sugar until evenly coated. Place on wire rack to cool completely.  Add another coat of powdered sugar. Store in tightly covered container.

  9. Yum. These are the type of cookies that I can eat a whole plate of even though I know they are rich and calorie laden.
