DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Beat butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the confectioners sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and salt; beat until well blended. Stir in flour and pecans.
  • Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake 15 minutes. Remove from baking sheets. Immediately roll hot cookies in the confectioners sugar. Place sugared cookies on wire racks to cool.
  • When cool, roll again in sugar at least once but I like to do it twice for a better finish.
