On a Mission: Holiday Cookie Recipe #4

Posted by & filed under Christmas, cookies, pecan.

Well, if you’ve been keeping up with TRB over the past few days and weeks, you know that Holiday Cookie Baking is in full swing. TRB prepped two doughs last night — a triple batch of the Chocolate Crackles and a double dose of Snickerdoodles. And, at 10am ET tomorrow, the baking officially begins.

To keep the ball rolling (pun intended), here’s Cookie recipe #4 — a favorite of TRB‘s (and many other recipients of the cookie trays) for years and years. The funny part is their name — TRB‘s cousin has affectionately named them “Pipchicks.” Although, the reason isn’t clear, you’ll surely agree that they deserve a place on your Holiday Cookie Baking list — no matter what you call them.

Pecan Balls (aka Pipchicks)
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp salt
2 cups flour
2 cups finely chopped pecans
Confectioner’s sugar (for rolling)

1. Cream butter with salt and vanilla.
2. Gradually add 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar and mix well.
3. Add flour and chopped nuts to dough.
4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
5. Shape dough into balls and place 1 inch apart on non-stick cookie sheet.
6. Bake at 350 degrees until light brown, 10-13 minutes, depending on size of cookie.
7. Remove hot cookies from pan and roll in extra confectioner’s sugar.

    The name Pipchicks is from an episode of I Dream Of Jeannie. It was the name of the candy Jeannie’s Mom made which, when eaten, gave Major Nelson tremendous strength
