Would make this again.
Been making these for close to 35 years, learned to make them from my first girlfriend's mother. The only way to make them better is to use butter instead of margarine. Also if you use a tablespoon of vanilla instead of teaspoon they're just a little bit more flavorful. 5 stars

Absolutely love this recipe. Made these cookies with my daughter last night and they're almost all gone! Apparently the two people who posted negative comments can't follow instructions or need a new oven. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
I would not make this again. I had the same problem as someone else the cookies flattened then crumbled. The middle was a little uncooked but the edges were golden. But the taste was not bad:) 3 stars

Mothers recipe. I make a thousand every Christmas. Everyone raves about them. Starting to bake this weekend and could not find the recipe for Pecan Balls. This is the one.
Thank You

I used to call these "snow balls" when I was a little girl. IMO, the recipe comes out best when butter is used instead of margarine, and it helps to roll the cookies in powdered sugar twice.

This recipe was passed down on my mother's side of the family four generations! The texture is delightful and the cookies just about melt in your mouth!
5 stars
