Grandma's Pecan Balls (From Aunt Katie)
40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
5 ingredients

I always thought the origin of these cookies was Germany, and my paternal Grandmother set me straight when I asked for the recipe today - it came from Aunt Katie (who isn't really my Aunt, she's my godmother). In any case, here are my most favourite cookies that Grandma makes - I'll have to post the rest of the authentic German recipes she gave me years ago as well... she's been making these since I was kneehigh to a grasshopper!
