Pecan Snowballs

After a unseasonably warm December, it seems like we are finally experiencing a true Michigan winter.  We had almost a foot of snow during one storm a week or so ago and the snow just keeps on coming. 

I shared this recipe as a guest post on Tina's site last month, but now that it fits in with the season (snowballs for snow, of course!), I thought I'd better post it here so you can have the recipe.  This is one of my favorite cookie recipes and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do!

Pecan Snowballs

Makes 2 dozen cookies

You will need:
1 cup shortening
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1-3/4 cup flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 teaspoon salt
powdered sugar for coating

1.  In a large bowl, beat shortening, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until fluffy.

2.  Add in flour, oats, chopped pecan, and salt.  Beat until combined.

3.  Form dough into 1 inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.

4.  Bake at 325 for 15-18 minutes.

5.  Roll in baked cookies in powdered sugar while they're still warm.

Store cookies in an airtight container.
