They freeze well, and are perfect to pull out when you need to put together a quick plate of treats for a friend–just give them a fresh dusting of powdered sugar when you load them up on the plate.
3/4 c butter, room temp
1 tsp vanilla
1 TBS water
1/3 c sugar
1 1/2 c flour
(this time I added a pinch of cinnamon, just for kicks)
1 c chocolate chips
1 c chopped pecans or walnuts (I like pecans)
Powdered sugar, for dusting.
Cream butter, vanilla, water, sugar and salt. Add flour and mix well. Stir in chocolate and nuts.
Form into 1” balls. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Cool for a few minutes. Roll in powdered sugar (or “make it snow” on top of them) while still warm.
