Snowball Cookies

I am finally done baking. I made 65 kringles this morning. has been a long baking season. This is a recipe for yummy buttery snowball cookies.

Place 3 cups of unsalted butter in the bowl of your mixer.

Add 3/4 cups of confectioners sugar and 3 tsp. vanilla extract.

Beat until fluffy.

Put the paddle on.

Slowly beat in 6 cups of flour. Add 2 cups of finely chopped pecans.

Scoop walnut sized balls and place on parchment covered cooking sheets. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Let cool for about 5 minutes and roll them in confectioners sugar.
