In a large bowl, mix flour, walnuts, sugar, salt, and vanilla.

Add butter and, using your hands, combine everything until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Form dough into small balls and place on preparedcookie sheet. When they’re still warm but cool enough to touch, rollcookies in powdered sugar.

Have you ever tried snowball cookies? Some people refer to them as Mexican wedding cookies or Russian tea cakes, but I prefer to call them snowball cookies. Plus, they look just like a little snowball!

If you’ve never tried these cookies before, imagine a rich, buttery shortbread cookie that’s studded with chopped pecans and rolled in powdered sugar. And yes, they’re every bit as delicious as they sound.

One thing that I love about snowball cookies is how easy they are to make. You only need 6 ingredients and one bowl to make these cookies and there’s no dough chilling required. You can even swap out the pecans for something else like dried cranberries or even mini chocolate chips!
