Snowballs, a.k.a. Russian tea cakes or Mexican wedding cookies, are melt-in-your-mouth cookies made with staple ingredients: butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, flour, finely chopped nuts, and salt. The round cookies are rolled in powdered sugar, so they sort of resemble snowballs. The festive treat is often served during the holiday season.

Not only are snowballs delicious, they’re incredibly easy to make. You’ll find the full, step-by-step recipe below — but here’s a brief overview of what you can expect when you bake these buttery snowball cookies:

1. Beat the butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla.
2. Mix in the flour, pecans, and salt.
3. Shape into balls and bake until set.
4. Roll the warm cookies in powdered sugar.
5. Let the cookies cool, then roll them in sugar again.

Tip: For a festive twist, add ¼ cup finely crushed peppermint candy canes to the confectioners’ sugar used for the final dusting.

How to Store Snowball Cookies

You can store snoballs in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. If you stack the cookies, place a piece of parchment paper between each layer to prevent sticking.


Can You Freeze Snowball Cookies?
