Snowball Cookies

Posted by admin on

I call these Snowball Cookies

But you may be more familiar with Russian Tea cakes?

Also known as Italian Wedding Cookies and also Mexican Wedding cookies.

Whatever you call them they are delicious!

I have made these cookies every year to compliment my cookie platters for over 2 decades!

I cannot even imagine how many I have eaten over that same course of time! Yikes!

They are quite possibly my favorite cookies, and I guess because for me they remind me of Christmas I just naturally call them Snowball Cookies!

They are crispy inside with sweet and velvety nutty goodness!

Snowball Cookies

A perfect bite to pop in your mouth!

You may notice the actual dough part is a very low sugar recipe, partly because they warm balls of bliss get rolled two times into powdered sugar right out of the oven for a sweet coating!

These cookies are part of my 12 Days of Christmas Cookies recipe series!
