This was my Mother's recipe. It has been a holiday treat in my family for over 50 years. Christmas would not be the same without snowballs. This is NOT Russian Tea Cakes. These cookies make a great gift and an appropriate addition to your holiday cookie platter.
NOTE: If mixture is too sticky, add 1 tbs. of flour at a time until consistency is manageable but not dry. You can also put mixture in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to firm dough up.
NOTE: Balls should be the same size for even cooking.
