  • Summary

    No holiday cookie tin would be complete without at least a few Noel nut balls, rich nut-and-butter domes, rolled in confectioners' sugar to resemble miniature snowballs. In Martha's family, the cookie dough was traditionally made with a touch of bourbon (or orange juice), for extra flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, sifted
    • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans (best if chopped by hand)
    • 1/2 cup sifted confectioners' sugar, plus more for rolling
    • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 1 teaspoon bourbon or fresh orange juice
