Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a standing mixer, cream softened butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Gradually mix in flour, salt, and food coloring until your batter is well-combined and a rich green color.
Stir in chopped pecans and cranberries until evenly distributed.
Form dough into 1 inch balls and place onto a prepared baking sheet (or two baking sheets depending on how large they are).
Bake cookies for 10 - 12 minutes. Remove from oven before they start to brown.
Allow cookies to cool enough to handle, then roll each in a small bowl of powdered sugar until fully coated.
Use melted white chocolate to secure a red heart sprinkle to the top of each cookie.
Allow cookies to cool completely and chocolate to set before serving or storing.
