Mexican Wedding Cookies

My husband and son's most favorite cookie during the Christmas holidays. These delicious nutty cookies are rolled in powdered sugar and are perfect for any special occasion.  Just five ingredients and 20 minutes later your oven is making this sweet, melt-in-your mouth celebration cookies.  Eat now or forever hold your peace.

What You Need

1 cup  butter, softened
1 cup  powdered sugar, divided
1 tsp.  vanilla
2 cups  flour
1 cup  finely chopped PLANTERS Pecans

Make It

HEAT oven to 350°F.
BEAT butter, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour, beating on low speed after each addition until blended. Add nuts; mix well.
SHAPE dough into 48 (1-inch) balls. Place, 1-1/2 inches apart, on baking sheets.
BAKE 14 to 15 min. or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool 3 min. on baking sheets. Roll warm cookies, 1 at a time, in remaining sugar in small bowl until evenly coated; place on wire racks. I roll each cookie a second time just to make sure they are coated nice and good.  Cool completely. Store in an air tight jar and enjoy!
