Christmas Baking Recipes – Pecan Balls


My mom’s Pecan Balls are my little sisters all time favorite Christmas Baking Recipe. When rolled in the sweet powdered sugar that just melts in your mouth they are divine. Mom could always tell when we would sneak a Pecan Ball because the sugar fell onto our shirts. I guess we were messy sneaky kids but we sure were happy.
