Growing up I loved pecan snowball cookies! They were delightfully dense and crumbly, with a light dusting of powdered sugar. So tasty!

So as my kids and I were working through classic cookie recipes, and making them healthier, these were quickly at the top of our list. We swapped out the wheat flour for grain-free flour and cleaned up the ingredients list. Let me tell you, they turned out amazing! Not one left on any of the cookie platters we brought to holiday celebrations! We hope you love them too!
