These worked out really well, though I only got 40 out of the dough (I guess they were slightly bigger). Delicious and they look great!

This is one of the best snowball recipes I've tried. I got exactly 48 cookies out of the batch. I baked these at my business and all I have there is a convection oven with a set moderate temperature, so these baked for more like 20 minutes in that oven. They came out perfect and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks much for posting!
