GF Pecan Balls

GF Pecan Balls

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 cups Freedom Delivered gluten-free All Purpose Flour (248 g)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, heaping
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Optional

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1-2 teaspoon water

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
Step 2
Cream the butter, sugar and flour together in a medium bowl with a stand mixer on medium.
Step 3
Fold in the pecans and salt until combined. The mixture will be crumbly but will stick together if pressed.
Step 4
Using a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon, roll dough into 1/2 -inch balls. Makes about 24 small balls. Place on baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Cookies will not spread.
Step 5
Bake at 275 degrees F for 45 minutes. Cookies will dry but not brown. Let cool completely on baking sheet. Store in air tight container.
Step 6
Optional: If you want to drizzle the cookies with chocolate glaze, melt chips in microwave on high for 30 seconds. Check if you can stir. If not, try another 30 seconds. If you can stir the chocolate but not drizzle it, add 1-2 teaspoons of water and stir. This should thin the consistency enough to be able to drizzle over cookies.
