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!

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!

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!
