It sure is beautiful. The weather today is perfect. I hope it’s like this all month. I’ll see a few more rose blooms this way too.

International Day Of Older Persons Day



Balloons Around The World Day


Fire Pup Day


Child Health Day


World Vegetarian Day


Homemade Cookies Day


Snowy Balls Cookie

Ingredients (4 dozen):
2 cups pecan halves*
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups powdered sugar
*Walnuts may be substituted.

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 350°
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, wax paper, or a silicon baking sheet.

1. Pour the pecans into the bowl of a food processor and blitz until very fine—almost moist. Pour into a medium bowl and set aside.

2. Place the butter, salt, sugar, and vanilla in the food processor or electric mixer and beat until smooth.

3. Add the pecans and mix until combined.

4. Slowly add the flour and beat just until the mixture forms a dough.

5. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place them an inch apart on the baking sheet.

6. Bake for 14–15 minutes until set and pale tan. They’ll begin to give off a nutty scent when they are ready.

7. Remove the nut balls from the oven and let them sit for 10 minutes before placing on a wire baking rack. When the cookies are slightly warm, prepare to dip them the powdered sugar.

8. Pour the powdered sugar into a spacious bowl. Dip the nut balls into the sugar and cover completely.

9. Store the nut balls in tins, separating the layers with aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

I like to make them at Christmas time, too, when I have
a chance! They are my next-to-favorites, after snickerdoodles! :D

Gorgeous, Amy!

Are those aspens? I don’t recognize the bark. LOL Hubby hates it when I do that! I can’t help it! My crowd won’t even stop at a garden center!

What garden center? We don’t see one and you don’t need any more plants!

"Older persons?" What's that?!:)

Can it really be Image and video hosting by TinyPic already?

Good Afternoon Meg
How are you? It's beautiful today. I see the leaves are just starting to change here. Booboo and I will take a ride to the ocean today. I wish we went over the weekend. I bet with the storm Kyle, the surfers were having a great time with the waves it created.

I'll have to give these cookies a try. Actually, I'm not a baker. Booboo will make them. ;)
