  1. These cookies pop up everywhere in a million ways…pecans, peanuts, walnuts. Always good no matter what. We love hazelnuts in ours!

  2. So simple, and I bet so tasty. They are perfect for this snowy weather.

  3. Ahh..I am going to make these today! Perfect.

  4. Your blog is just beautiful, I love it! (I found it through another gorgeous blog, Buff Chickpea). Your snow balls look lovely, and I’m partial to the version with pecans myself!

  5. Thanks, Andrea! Glad you found L+D. Pecans are my favorite too.

  6. Not much snow here, as always (England).

    Still, lots of rain though.

  7. Hi! What a gorgeous photo to post with this recipe. These “balls” are definitely a childhood favorite, and always a hit1 Why don’t we make them during the year more often, instead of just at Christmas? Love your blog!


  8. We call them Swedish Butter Balls in my home. My mother used to make them for me, and now I bake them for my friends! They are my most popular holiday cookie.
    It’s interesting to see the differences between our recipes. I use twice the amount of nuts (pecans) than you, and half the sugar. We also roll them in powdered sugar instead of dusting, so you end up ingesting the same amount (or more!) of sugar in the end.

  9. These look wonderful! Love your recipe choices, Tim! The addition of cloves/cardamom/cinnamon would be nice, too..?

  10. Question. This recipe looks delicious, so I want to make sure I get it right. In the recipe you call for 8 oz, or two sticks of butter. But isn’t 2 sticks of butter 16 oz? 2 sticks sounds right, so it’s the only fat in the recipe, but I wanted to make sure. Thanks!

  11. Hi Julo, Nope, 2 sticks of butter is 8 oz. (4oz each), as the recipe states. The recipe is correct. Happy baking!

  12. I know it’s been years since you posted this, but maybe you will still read my comment. My Mother always made these cookies, but a little different, she always put a hersheys kiss in the middle of the cookie, and called them “secret kisses”. They were so good! But maybe not for you, you don’t like chocolate. Just thought I’d share the suggestion :)

  13. Thanks for the idea, Taisie! I know most people love chocolate, so I am sure people will think this sounds great!
