Snowball Cookies

Delicious buttery melt in your mouth pieces of pure heaven on earth! These cookies contain either walnuts or pecans.  These cookies have many different names: Russian Tea Cakes, Mexican Wedding Cakes, I just call them Snowballs 🙂 These cookies are very rich and rolled in a generous amount of powdered sugar.  If you have a nut allergy you can leave the pecans out (the cookies are still just as fantastic)


2 c. flour (self-rising)
2 sticks butter, melted
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chopped nuts

Mix melted butter, flour and sugar together. Then stir in remaining ingredients. Roll in balls and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Cook at 350°F for 12-15 minutes. Roll in powdered sugar.
