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.


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.


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. Not recommended.
