      Really?? I lost my mom's recipe so was excited to find this 5 star one. BUT it is not forming balls!! Not staying together. Another recipe I looked at had the sugar and butter quantities exactly opposite!! Is there an error here?? Have to throw it all out!! Not happy!

      I've been making these for years, but with no egg or vanilla. They are sooo good, and a tradition in our family.

      We looked forward to this every holiday season- but we rolled in coconut, not powdered sugar.
