How to Make Pumpkin Spice Snowballs

Add together the flour, salt, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice, using a large bowl.

Mix together the butter and powdered sugar and vanilla using a hand mixer until combined and fluffy.

Slowly add in the dry ingredients until a dough forms.

Scoop some dough into the palm of your hand using a tablespoon for measuring and roll into the shape of a ball.

Place the dough onto the prepared sheet and repeat until all the dough is used.

For 8-9 minutes or until light brown, bake in the oven.

Take out of the oven and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

Add together 1 C powdered sugar and 2 tbsp ground cinnamon and whisk in a medium bowl.

Roll one cookie at a time into the powdered sugar and set on a wire rack. Repeat with the rest of the cookies.

Once you finish rolling in the sugar, repeat another roll in the sugar for a nice coating.

What are Snowball Cookies?

Snowball Cookies are a mixture of a few ingredients. The ingredients are formed into a ball, baked and add a dusting of sugar they make snowballs. These are very similar to cake balls that are then rolled in the powdered sugar. This gives the appearance of snowballs when piled together.

Can I Add Pecans to Snowballs?

You can add chopped pecans to these snowballs. You can add the chopped pecans to the inside of the ball before it is baked. I recommend chopping the pecans into very small pieces.

  1. I made these cookies today. While baking they spread out. Any idea why they didn’t stay in a ball like yours? That being said they were absolutely delicious! Will definitely be making these again.
