Some people call them Russian Tea Cakes, others call them snowballs, but I call them Mexican Wedding Cakes because that's what my mom called them! They melt in your mouth and are soooo easy to make!
1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups unbleached flour
1 cup finely chopped unsalted pecans
3/4 to 1 cup powdered sugar
Mix 1/2 cup powered sugar, butter, vanilla and salt until light and fluffy. Spoon flour into measuring cup, level off. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing in between until well-blended. Mix in pecans.
