Don't you just love the alliteration of "Pecan Powder Puffs"? I think it's just gorgeous, so when our host this week, Tia of Buttercream Barbie, chose Pecan Powder Puffs for this week's Tuesday with Dorie, I had to use pecan nuts in keeping with the name.
These tiny cookies are a modified version of Mexican Wedding Cakes, but are made with ground pecans instead of the usual almonds, and are rolled into tiny marble sized balls. The finished cookies are but a puff of flavour and then are gone.
I thought these were lovely, and they disappeared quickly at work. Sandra, my official taste tester, said that they were "beautiful".
