Snowballs (Aka. Mexican Wedding Cookies, Aka. Russian Tea Cakes)

What's the difference between a snowman and a snowgirl?


Think about THAT while you're letting these scrumptious and delicate snowballs melt in your mouth!

Mmmmm. Snowman testicles. Arghlghlhgl.

Stuffing your mouth full of these has never had such very odd implications before.

  • 1 c. vegan non-hydrogenated margarine

  • 1/4 c. granulated sugar

  • 2 t. vanilla

  • 2 c. all-purpose flour, sifted

  • 2 c. raw pecans, almonds, walnuts, or hazelnuts (I used a mix of the first three), finely chopped

  • 2 c. powdered sugar, sifted


Preheat oven to 300F. Line a cookie sheet (or two) with parchment paper (or use non-stick ones).

Cream the vegan margarine, granulated sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add the flour, mixing until thoroughly combined. Add your nuts (hee hee), mixing until well-blended, about 30 seconds.

Measure out generously-rounded teaspoonfuls of dough, and roll into balls. Place about an inch apart on your sheet(s). Bake until they just begin to turn golden, about 30 minutes. To tes for doneness, remove one cookie from the sheet and cut in half. There should be no doughy strip in the center.

Roll cookies in the powdered sugar while they're still hot. Cool on baking sheets before serving.

Makes about 3-dozen snowman testicles.
