Servings

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 package (16 ounces) confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 1 cup finely chopped toasted pecans
  • 2 tablespoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup bourbon

Instructions

  • Beat butter and confectioners’ sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Stir in pecans, vanilla and bourbon. Using a 1/2-tablespoon (1/4-ounce scoop), scoop out balls. Place on parchment paper-lined tray.
