  1. I just made your chocolate chip snowball cookies and they, literally, melt in your mouth. Right before Christmas I tried a different chocolate chip snowball recipe and it rather blah – not what I was looking for at all. THIS is the recipe I’ve been looking for and am so glad I found it on Pinterest. Thank you for sharing and I believe I’ll check out your other yummies.

  2. I just love this woman! I have been making the snowball cookies from this site for years and every year my family asks for more! Faves are chocolate mint, Rolo, Reeses stuffed and lemon!!!!

  3. I haven’t tried these yet but can’t wait we have a large family and I know they will love them. Thank you

  4. I have made the original lemon recipe to rave reviews! The most foolproof cookie in my repertoire-thank you Dorothy. I really appreciate the variations. I just made the double chocolate; I wanted a citrus tone so kept the lemon flavourings. I swapped out a 1/4 cup flour for cornstarch because I like the texture it imparts to “shortbread” like cookies. Thanks again and Merry Christmas

  5. Definitely Mom’s Russian Tea Cakes, my all time favorite. Many many years ago I used to live above a Polish lady who made the absolute best Christmas cookies ever. One of the cookies that she made was Russian Tea Cake. They were so delicious that I never forgot how good they were. Thank you for posting the recipe.

  6. My family has been making Russian Teacakes for as long as I can remember — I’m in my 60’s. The last few years my 4 older sisters and I have gotten together for some Christmas baking. Russian Teacakes are always included. The last 2 years, we also made your Double Chocolate Snowballs. I also remember Peppermint Snowballs and last year we just swapped out walnuts with pistachios. Looking at all your Snowball recipes, we will have to choose another flavor to add to our baking this year. The Pumpkin Spice sounds awfully good. Thanks for all your recipes!
