You won’t believe how easy it is to make these Christmas Pecan Balls. It’s a simple, one-bowl recipe that’s pretty much foolproof although everyone will think you’re a gourmet baker. They make an impressive holiday gift and whenever I make them, everyone asks for the recipe. Now you can see how simple it really is.
I always try to bake the healthiest way possible but I was not able to make these with less butter… but I did try. During the holidays, even I have to splurge on these melt-in-your-mouth cookies (also called Mexican Wedding Cookies). One thing though, if you make them be sure to toast the pecans first. It makes a world of difference and you can watch my how-to video to see how easy that is.
I love to bake at Christmas and the two things I make every single year are my sugar cookies and these pecan balls. Guess which one is easier? The Pecan Balls! Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones
