The kind of cookie that brings memories of your childhood, no matter what your age! These crunchy cookies have been called sandies, snowballs, and everything else under the winter sun. We call them delicious!

Why Try? These are wonderful with a cold glass of milk or a hot mug of coffee. Did we mention they’re delicious?

To make a chocolate-flavored version, simply add 1/4 cup cocoa powder when you add the flour.

  • 2 cups chopped pecans
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
