    Christmas Carol's Note:

    When I see a holiday cookie platter, I usually grab the powdery snowball cookie first cuz it's my favorite. This was the recipe my grandma used for as long as I could remember, and I think they're the best I've had! I make them now, but yummy as they are, I must admit I enjoyed them much more when grandma was here to bake them for us.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a large bowl, combine all ingredients together just until blended.
    2. 2
      If it seems a bit dry, add the 1 tablespoon of milk.
    3. 3
      Roll into approximately 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
    4. 4
      Bake at 375F for 20 minutes. Oven times may vary so checking your cookies after about 12 minutes or so may be necessary so your cookies do not overbake/This is the temp and time my grandmother had on the recipe but seeing as the temp is a bit high I would check them periodically.
    5. 5
      When cookies are lukewarm, roll in powdered sugar.
    6. 6
      When completely cooled, you can roll again in the powdered sugar for even sweeter and"snowier" cookies, if you like.
    7. 7
      Note; If you prefer rum balls, you may add a tablespoon of rum {or more if you want really happy cookies} to the mixture before baking.

      The recipe calls for mixing ALL ingredients, and I think this is a mistake. Most of the powdered sugar is for rolling the cookies in after they've baked. I followed the recipe as written and the cookies are way too sweet, and the texture is off. I will try again with only about 1/2 cup in the dough.

      I made these today and really enjoyed them. After 12 minutes mine were still a bit raw in the middle but didnt know how to tell if they were done on the outside so by the time I realized this I had already cooled them and rolled them in the powdered sugar. They still tasted mighty fine! Thanks for a cookie repeat recipe!

      These taste fabulous! I did have some trouble with baking them, 20 minutes was to long, they burned on the bottom. I baked them about 16 min. and they were alright, but still a bit on the dark side. Also since it doesn't say anything in the recipe I used a greased baking sheet, which might have contributed to the bottoms burning. Next time I will try wax or parchment paper on the baking sheet. Overall this is a great treat! I will definitely make these again!
