I didn't make this...but they look exactly like what I've always heard of as Butter Balls. If they are the very same cookie, they are amazingly good & simple to make. Delicious!
I agree with some of the previous comments that these cookies have little taste. Next time I will go with my instincts and add some almond extract. I disagree with the comments about the cookies not retaining their shape. These are the easiest cookies ever to make. They mold/keep their shape well.
I made these for christmas and they were a huge hit with both sides of my family, and have have been requested for every family function for now on. They are wonderful and melt in your mouth. I recommend making them on the small side, just big enough to be a single bite of deliciousness! Oh I also use a 1 tsp of almond extract and 2 tsp of vanilla...Yum yum! Enjoy!
These are so good! I made them with some friends and we really enjoyed them, Thanks.
LOVE THIS COOKIE!!! I make it every xmas to place in cookie tins. They keep well and are pleasing to the entire crowd. :D
This is somewhat great! I added ground cinnamon to the sugar and a pinch of ground nutmeg. The cookie was dry and tasteless and the covering was sweet. Overall it was good!
I made these with almonds instead of pecans, and they were delicious! For some reason, they did not stay as balls when I baked them. They got flat at the bottom, but still tasted great after being dipped in the powdered sugar. I will make these again soon!
Tastes wonderfull!!
okay, so I've found that in order for them to not be too dry, you have to beat the (super softened)butter and powdered sugar for a while, so that it's really light and fluffy. Then I added only 1/2 cup pecans, (I bought them chopped, then before opening the bag, I crushed them until they were almost dust) and the extract then blended, then slowly added flour...blending after each 1/4 cup I added. They were so moist! Super easy to roll into a ball. I made a second batch and instead of the vanilla I added 2 tsp of lemon extract. AMAZING. With the first batch I drizzled chocolate over them, then dusted with powdered sugar.
This recipe was fantastic... I don't understand the reviews that claim it did not have a lot of flavor? In all fairness, I did omit the pecans and added 1C of Hersheys Kissables...buttery goodness with chocolate ... YUM- no one can eat just one! Definitely a keeper!
