If you are looking for an easy Christmas or winter cookie, these Snowball Cookies are just want you want! They are super easy and melt in your mouth when you eat them! My mom has always made these Snowball Cookies for my birthday in December and are a regular family tradition at Christmas as well. I hope you enjoy them! We usually end up doubling the recipe when we make them because the kids love them, too!
1 c. Crisco
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. flour

Preheat oven to 325. Cream together the Crisco, vanilla and sugar until dough is fluffy. Add salt, flour, and pecans. Mix well. Shape into 1″ balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes. When cool, frost and decorate with your favorite sugar cookie frosting!
