Grandma Minecci's Snowball Cookies

This is my brother-in-law’s favorite recipe passed down from grandmother to daughter in my wife’s family for years.



Step: 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Step: 2

Beat shortening, butter, and white sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; add eggs and vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Sift flour and salt into creamed butter mixture and stir just until dough is combined; fold in pecans. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and arrange on a baking sheet.

Step: 3

Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Cool cookies slightly and roll in confectioners' sugar. Cool cookies completely and roll again in confectioners' sugar.
