These pecan pie balls may be simple but they make a delicious dessert! They’re always a huge hit with pecan lovers and you can make in just 10 minutes with 4 ingredients.



  1. Blend Dough: Place all ingredients in a food processor. Mix until it forms a thick, sticky dough you can press together between your fingers. If it’s not sticking together (it should if your dates were soft), add 1 tsp warm water and process again. Repeat as needed until the dough is rollable.
  2. Roll Pecan Balls: Using your hands, roll the dough into 12 bite-sized balls.


Dates: It’s impotant to use soft, moist dates in this recipe as they create the “dough”. If your dates are overly dry, place them in a bowl (pit first) and soak in hot water for 15 minutes. After soaking, drain well and proceed with the recipe.

Storage: Store in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.
