Cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Sift together the flour and cocoa and add to butter mixture. Mix well, and stir in pecans. Roll into small balls.

A neighborhood friend gave this recipe to me when I was in school. She made these in Home Economics class and we thought they were delicious! I still love them!
