Snowball Cookies

One of my favorite Christmas Cookies are called Snowballs, but I’ve also hear them called Mexican Wedding Cookies, or Russian Tea Cakes too.

I look forward to making these all year and my kids love that they look like snowballs!

I’ve made several recipes over the years, but after a little tweaking of those, I have one that is perfect!

Snowball Christmas Cookies


  1. 2 sticks of REAL butter, softened
  2. 1/4 cup White Sugar
  3. 1/4 cup of Brown Sugar
  4. Dash of Cinnamon
  5. 1 cup of Chopped Pecans
  6. 2 cups of All-Purpose Flour
  7. Powdered Sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line your cookie sheet silicon mats or parchment paper.  Take your Chopped Pecans and chop them even more until they are little pieces.
  2. In a stand mixer, beat together the white and brown sugar and the butter until fluffy.  Beat in the cinnamon, then add in the pecans and flour until the dough becomes together.
  3. Use a cookie scoop and form tablespoon sized balls and place them about 1 inch apart on the cookies sheet.  Bake for about 10-12 minutes (you will see the bottoms get slightly golden brown), and let them rest on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes or until cool to the touch.
  4. Roll through powdered sugar and let them finish cooling on a wire rack.
  5. Once they are cooled, then roll through powdered sugar for a second coat.

*They can be stored in an airtight container for a week.
