Pecan Butter Balls Cookies

For Christmas this year, I asked my friends and family to bring healthy Christmas cookies instead of sweets. The result: an adorable batch of pecan butter balls! These little round wonders are packed with protein and are full of that caramelly, sticky, nutty flavor we all love in sweet baked goods. What I didn’t expect is that they tasted even richer and better when chilled! Everyone loved ’em!

I love this recipe. They’re easy to make and so delicious. They just melt in your mouth and make you wonder if they are really that easy to make? I think they would be perfect for a holiday party since they are so easy to transport and make.

Pecan Butter Balls Cookies

I love the holidays and I want to try baking some delicious treats. These pecan butter balls sounds perfect! How do I make them?


  • 2 sticks of margarine.
  • 4 tbsps of sugar.
  • 2 cups of chopped pecans.
  • 2 cups of flour.
  • 2 tsps of vanilla.


  • In a bowl, mix all of the ingredients using your hand and roll into balls.
  • In a preheated oven to 350°, bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Once lightly browned, roll in the powdered sugar while still hot, and again when cooled.
  • Easy, peasy and sweet! I personally don’t use a lot of powdered sugar. I just sprinkle some over the top. But the original recipe is to roll the biscuits in the powdered sugar! Try it yourselves and let me know what you think.

So, without further ado, let’s get into the star of this show: that Pecan Butter Ball recipe. We really hope you’ll try it out, and that it becomes a go-to treat for you and your family.
