"Christmas cookies that look like little snow balls."

actual recipe was a little off. if making very small balls, will only make 2 dozen cookies, not four. I also had to double the amount of powdered sugar to cover all the cookies, and the cooking time had to be doubled or they would have been mush; but following these motifications, they turned out excellent. might I suggest 350 degrees instead of 300.
A big disappointment. Recipe seems flawed, as sugar content is much less than found in other snowball recipes. Results do not cook in time stated, are dry and crumble easily, and have a pasty taste.
This recipe is wrong, wrong, wrong!! It takes no more than 1/2 or 3/4 cup of powdered sugar to roll these in, yet the recipe does not tell you to add any of it to the actual cookie. Also, the temp and baking time are off. The cookies turned out crumbly, as soon as I picked them up, they literally crumbled in my hand.
Out of 10 people that tried these only one liked them. They were dry and crumbly and the powdered sugar ended up looking like paste. these will not be on my Christmas baking list.
Good flavor. The cookies were moist out of the oven. 3 & 1/2 stars
the measurements for this recipe only actually make about cookies, so eb careful! you can substitute pralines instead of pecans. it is tricky to get these to actually stay in BALLS, they kind of flatten out on the bottom but i don't see any way around this! they taste yummy though!
These are so easy to make - you never think that the little bit of dough will make 48 of them, but it does! They taste exactly like the snowball cookies my mom used to make... they melt in your mouth!
I made these for Christmas last year and they were yummy. They also freeze well.
