  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and 1/3 cup confectioner's sugar until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, ground pecans, 1/2 cup ground chocolate, cinnamon and salt; mix well.
  3. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.
  4. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill 1 to 2 hours, or until firm.
  5. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  6. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until the cookies are firm to the touch. Cool 1 minute on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack.
  7. For the coating, sift 1/2 cup of the confectioner's sugar and 1/4 cup of the ground cocoa into a shallow bowl. While cookies are still warm, roll them in the coating.

This recipe is very good, but EXTREMELY chocolatey! I found that some of the chilling time could be cut down by placing the dough in a freezer. But the recipe is not hard to make.

I made these cookies and Mexican Wedding Cookies I for a Cinco de Mayo party - the adults and kids loved them. Soft, pillowy texture if you bake on parchment paper. I will make again!

This is a very good cookie for those allergic to eggs. It isn't too sweet. I left the pecans out and it was still very good.

Crumbled while I was trying to roll them at the end. Grating was too much of a hassle and didn't work out well. Not enough taste to them.

Made these for an "international" party. Very nice texture, light and crumbly. Different from your average cookie. I will definitely make these again.

These were great! My family loved them, and will use this reciepe again next year if not sooner.

awesome,and so easy to make. i gave them away last christmas and all ready people are asking for them this year.
