Pecan Puffs, aka Canon Balls

These cookies, which I associate with Christmas, also go by the name "Canon Balls". You can thank my 3 year old self for that. I misheard the word "pecan", and since they are ball-shaped... well, you can kind of see the logic. Kids know way more about pirate weaponry than about nut varieties.

Pecan Puffs

1 cup butter, softened
4 TB sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups pecans, chopped
2 cups flour

-Cream the butter and sugar.
-Add the vanilla, pecans and flour. Mix.
-Roll the dough into small balls (the circumference of a quarter)
-Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 300 for 45 minutes.
-Roll balls in powdered sugar.
