Here's my entry:

Mini-Chip Snowball Cookies

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups )12 ounce package) semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
Powdered sugar

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and salt. Add vanilla. Gradually add flour; stir in chocolate chip sand pecans. Shape 1 tablespoon of dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at preheated 375 oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned. Remove from oven and sift powdered sugar over hot cookies on baking sheet. Let stand for 10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar if desired. Makes 5 dozen cookies. Enjoy!
