Nut Butter Balls
December 15, 2011

After reading all of the reviews I decided to have a go at doing some things a little differently than the original recipe. First, I remember these cookies having that delicious almond aroma, it just pulls you in by the nose tempting you to take a bite. So, instead of using what the recipe calls for I substituted 1/2 tsp almond extract and a tsp of vanilla. Next, on the first batch, instead of rolling them into balls, I used a small butter scoop and put them on the cookie sheet with that. The second batch, I rolled into balls. After baking, they are both the same shape, flat on the bottom and domed on top. So why go to all of the trouble to roll them? I don't care if they are balls, they are still beautiful. Last, I only used one cup of pecans. These delicate little cookies dissolve in your mouth in a bite of tender, buttery, pecan flavored goodness. Served with a nice latte... they are a little bite of heaven. My husband says "It doesn't get any better than this!" Thank you for sharing the recipe and to all of you who offered suggestions. Hmmm... I wonder how these would taste if I put ______ in them *WEG*
