Ingredients

1/2 c powdered sugar
1 c butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 c all purpose flour
1 c finely ground almonds (or pecans)
1/4 tsp salt


These are light and quite sweet. Make them mouth-size bites as they can get crumbly.


1/2 c powdered sugar


1 c butter


2 tsp vanilla


2 c all purpose flour


1 c finely ground almonds (or pecans)


1/4 tsp salt


Oven at 325


1. Cream butter & sugar with vanilla until light & fluffy


2. Add flour, almonds and salt. Mix until dough holds together.


3. Shape into 1” balls & place on cookie sheet


4. Bake 15-20 min


5. Cool slightly, about 5 min. Roll in extra powdered sugar


6. Cool completely. Roll in more powdered sugar.


Yields about 5 dozen balls


Variations I've done:


- Substitute almond extract for vanilla


- Use a mix of cocoa and powdered sugar on outside when using pecans inside


- Use rum extract when using pecans
