Pecan Puffs

Light and delicious; it’s like eating miniature snowballs!

Makes 24


1/2 cup butter, softened

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup pecans

1 cup sifted cake flour

confectioners’ sugar, for dusting

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

With an electric mixer, cream the butter and granulated sugar until light.

Add the salt and vanilla.

Finely grind the nuts in a food processor, blender, or nut grinder, stirring several times to prevent the nuts from becoming oily.

Stir the nuts and flour into the butter mixture.

Roll the dough into marble-sized balls and place on 2 greased cookie sheets.

Bake for 30-45 minutes.

While the puffs are still hot, roll them in confectioners’ sugar.

Let cool completely, then roll again in the confectioners’ sugar.
