THE PERFECT PECAN BALL RECIPE

Last week it was my Sunday to help with breakfast in our ABS (Adult Bible Study). I took two things: this breakfast quiche and a new recipe I decided to try--pecan balls. Turns out they are easy and delicious. I'd be remiss if I kept this kind of goodness to myself. Here's the recipe...



Ingredients:

1 cup All-purpose flour
1/2 cup (one stick) unsalted butter
1 heaping cup of chopped pecans
2 tablespoons of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt

Once I saw the recipe ingredients, I realized this is pretty much the crust I make for my 4-Layer Delight just molded into bite-sized balls. You can see that recipe and all the other ones I've shared here in the Woodbank Lane Recipe File



Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Mix butter, sugar, and flour. It will not be smooth. It will be more like cookie dough.


Stir in pecans and salt. You'll have to work with it a good bit to get it all combined.



Roll the dough into 1/2 each balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.


Bake for 45 minutes. Let them cool completely before moving them to store. They break apart easily if you try to move them before they cool.


Look how cute they are. Ha!






They were a success in class. :-) And needless to say, I ate waaaaaay too many. I think these would be perfect in a pretty Christmas tin for teachers' gifts or for a neighbor or coworkers. I'll be making these again soon! And I loved how they filled up my milkglass pieces perfectly. Let me know if you try them...
