Pecan Butterball Cookie Recipe, Member CindyK1957

This is my Mother's recipe exactly! She is in heaven now, so I wasn't sure where I would be able to find the recipe for her annual batch of Pecan Butterballs. I know, I know! They are buttery and sugary and terrible nutritionally, but honestly nothing says ""Christmas"" to me like the taste of these wonderful little cookies.
