The best cookies you'll ever have!

Last night, my mom and I decided to treat ourselves and made our family's best cookies, Mini-Chip Snowballs
This recipe is from my grandma (Mimi) and are Miss Heather's favorite! 
Normally, we bake about 200 of these during Christmas time but last night, we figured, we can have a couple a little early this year. A little Halloween cookie if you will! 

3 sticks of butter
3/4 Cup of Powdered Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1 Tablespoon of Vanilla
3 Cups of Flour
1 Package of Semi-Sweet Mini Morsels
1/2 Cup of Finely Chopped Pecans (optional)
An Electric Mixer
One Mixing Bowl

Step One
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees and place your 3 sticks of butter into a mixing bowl.
Use your electric mixer to stir and soften the butter.

Step Two
Add the 3/4 cup of powdered sugar and mix well.

Step Three
Stir in the 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of vanilla and the 3 cups of flour.
Make sure you are using your electric mixer to stir everything together after each addition.

Step Four
Add the package of semi-sweet mini morsels and mix well.
If you choose to add pecans, mix them in now.

Your mix should look like this after everything has been added.

Step Five
Roll your dough into ping-pong size balls and place them onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake them in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
While your cookies are baking, prepare a bowl of powdered sugar to roll your baked cookies in.

Step Six
After baking for 10-12 minutes, remove your cookies from the oven and place them onto a cooling rack.

Step Seven
Wait 1 minute and then roll your cookie into powdered sugar and place back onto the cooling rack.

Enjoy your mini-chip snowball cookies!
Don't mind if I do!
