So, I really have no idea what these cookies are called. Snowballs. Russian tea cakes. Mexican Wedding Cakes. They’re super simple and tasty though.

Take a scooper to measure out equal rounds. So they don’t have a flat bottom, roll them in your palms. I used a larger scoop and got just over 24 cookies. You can use a smaller scoop to get more. Bake them for about 15 minutes.

Let the cookies settle on the pan for about 5 minutes. While they are still hot, roll them in powdered sugar. I fill the bottom of a larger tuperware and used my hands to roll the cookie around and cover the cookies with the sugar. Set them aside to cool and then coat them again. Yum!
