I made these for Christmas -- my husband kept asking for "nutballs" -- this was the only recipe I found -- (the most common recipe are Snowballs or mexican wedding cookies I soon found out lol) But they are good - I didn't have cake flour - just AP and I would say bake them for about 10 mins... Other than that yummy.
