Pecan Snowball Cookies

These cookies were the biggest hit at my house this year during Christmas! And they are really quick and easy to make!
*(I also bought medium-sized Christmas bags (you know, the kind with handles) and put some of these in sacks (wrapped loosely in waxed paper), along with Pioneer Biscuit Mix and a jar of my homemade jelly(with a red unraveled bow tied around the lid), along with a baggie of doggie treats, to both of my neighbors.)*
They are not the most frugal cookie, but they are one of the most delightful!
1 cup of butter
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 t vanilla
1/2 t salt
2 cups of plain flour
2 cups of finely chopped pecans
Roll into balls.
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 15 minutes at 375 until slightly golden and set.
Cool slightly and roll in powdered sugar.

I love these cookies! When I was little, our pastor's wife used to make them and bring them to dinners at church. Yum!
