North Pole Snowball Cookies

This year, make sure that these North Pole Snowball Cookies are on your Christmas desserts table or platter. Believe it or not, but this popular Christmas cookie recipe packs bunch of flavor and texture into one little sugar-covered treat. The cookie is made of a shortbread-like dough and a generous amount of finely chopped pecans. After they're done baking and they've had time to cool, you toss them in powdered sugar. You don't even need to coat them with butter or anything before you toss them in sugar. The powdered sugar will completely cover them and stick.

These cookies are so good and such a big hit during the Holidays. They are so easy to make that I decided to surprise the kids with a batch of them "off season". This particular recipe is really easy to follow, and well written, I may swap my usual recipe for Snowball Cookies for this one in December.

I've tried various interpretations of this recipe and they've all been delicious. I love the look of the little snowballs - the perfect festive holiday treat!

These are perfect winter cookies! I love the idea of naming them Snowball cookies in order to make them into a winter tradition.

Oh how I love these cookies, I have been making them for years now and they don't last long in this house. I have to make a double batch so everyone can take some home at the end of Christmas night. I Love the name North Pole Snowball Cookies, I just called these snowballs. I divide the powdered sugar in half and mix 2 tablespoons of cocoa to one bowl and whisk it together to make a fluffy chocolate coating. With my growing family, I have to make sure no one is allergic to nut, so I always put a note paper on the tin saying "made with nuts". Thank you for sharing this free recipe.

yum!!! i love the mexican wedding cake cookie! cant wait to try these out too!!

Yummy.... These are one of my favorite cookies

I am definately making these

So if more than one person (let's say, myself) wants cookies, I have to make more than one batch? LOL

These look so delicious

These cookies would be great for the holidays.

I have a similar recipe to this and it is one of my favorite cookies. Got it from my mother in law

We used to make these every year growing up.

These look great and the recipe seems easy enough. I hope mine come out looking as good as these!

these look wonderful and tasty!

Sometimes, Mom and Grandma would shape these into crescents!

I have made cookies similar to this and they are sooooo good

These look absolutely delicious! I will have to try them very soon!! :D

One of my favorite cookies.
