Pecan Snowball Cookies

Hey y’all!! Are you as surprised as I am that I’ve been posting so much? I just have so much I want to share with you all before Christmas!!  This past weekend we finally got our turn with that horrible cold front that was moving across the country and since we were trapped inside I started round one of my holiday baking! It was fun experimenting with lots of new recipe ideas and I had some winners of the bunch so the next few days will be full of recipes-including my turn Friday on the 1st Annual Blogger Cookie Exchange hosted by The Everyday Home!

Before I share today’s recipe I wanted to very quickly show you a new feature I’ve added to the blog recently.  You may ave noticed up there on the navigation bar there is now a “Recipe Box” tab.

I’ve added a Zip List Recipe Box option to the blog to make it easier for you all to save my recipes and add the ingredients to your online shopping list.  Simply click the save button on the recipe:

I’m using for this feature-they power recipe boxes and shopping lists you find online at AOL’s KitchenDaily,,, and now, The Happier Homemaker! Best of all, you can save recipes from any of these websites, including mine, and they all get saved in one place. No more hunting around from site-to-site to locate your favorite recipes.

Now, back to the recipe!! I love these cookies, they were one of my favorites growing up-they just melt in your mouth!
