Pecan Sandies Cookie Recipe

Pecan Sandies, Mexican Wedding Cookies, or Snowball Cookies, these little cookies powdered with confectioner’s sugar are delicious, no matter the name and are favorites for celebrations and holidays!

These beautiful snowy white cookies always get everyone’s attention when I include them on a Christmas Cookie Tray! They are also egg-free, so they are a perfect treat to serve to those with egg allergies.

– Butter – Confectioner’s sugar – All-purpose flour – Pecans



Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Cream together butter and sugar with electric mixer. Add in the flour and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Slowly stir in the pecans.


Scoop a teaspoon of the cookie dough and roll between your palms to form a ball. Place the ball of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet.



Bake until lightly golden, about 12 minutes.


Remove from oven and allow to cool to the touch. Roll in confectioner’s sugar.
