This was another recipe from the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies. I've found so many fabulous recipes from so many sweet bloggers. This one came from Bites and Bliss. They seemed easy to make (mom made these) and they were delicious. We did forget to use the parchment paper on the second batch, which was no buena. Those ended up burnt and in the trash. Other than that, I hope you enjoy these traditional cookies as much as I did!
Italian Wedding Cookies (aka: Snowballs or Russian Tea Cakes)
- 1 cup butter
- 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar (plus more for coating)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2.25 cup flour
- 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 400°. Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add the flour and salt and mix well. Fold in the chopped pecans until well incorporated. Roll into balls and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes just until set (not browned!) and roll in extra confectioner’s sugar. Allow to cool on wire rack.
They were the perfect center for the plates of cookies I made for D's team at work.
