Pecan Snowballs

Recipe by Aroostook

Quick to make these little bite-sized cookies will be a great addition to a cookie tray during the holidays. These freeze very well and can be placed on a cookie sheet and baked while still frozen.

This is one of my favorite cookie recipes, and this recipe did not disappoint me at all. I would probably add a little more sugar though the next time I make these, for a slightly sweeter cookie. But this is just a personal preference. The cookies are actually perfectly delicious just as written in the posted recipe. Thanks, Aroostook. Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
