Christmas Butterball Cookies
My Christmas Butterball Cookies can be rolled into powdered sugar, left plain for a less sweet cookie or even add nuts for even more flavor. A wonderful cookie to have on a Christmas cookie tray or to serve to guests. This is the 6th cookie recipe of about 15 that I will be posting.

I started my Christmas baking yesterday and these are on my agenda for today. With chopped pecans, I call them pecan dreams. So yummy.
I make these every year for my mother in law. She’s like you, her favorite too! What ever is left after Christmas Day I give to her to take home.
There is some left?? 😁🍪🎅
Yes but just because I only put out about 8 cookies on my tray. She loves them so much I actually save the rest so she can take them home. See what a good daughter in law I am…lol
I have to do the same, we keep eating the Christmas treats long after we should.
These used to be my favorites – we always made them with chopped pecans. We called them “Christmas balls.”
I have heard so many names for these, I just call them delicious! Lol What is your favorite now?

Thank you for sharing this!!! 🎄☃️🎅🏻
It’s printing out as we speak!
Enjoy GP they are easy to make. I always freeze them without powdered sugar. When I take them out of the freezer I roll them in the sugar and wipe off the excess. When the thaw they look and taste perfect.
One of my favs
Me too Beth. They melt in your mouth when rolled in the powdered sugar.
Buttery cookies are the best!
They are and not so sickening sweet for the people that don’t like sweet. I make these for my mother in law, she’s 91!
Sounds really good to me not tried it before so will have to give this my best shot and enjoy. Thank you once again dear lady
Kevin you won’t believe how simple these are. They don’t rise or spread out so you can put the entire recipe on one cookie sheet pan. Add crushed nuts and roll in powdered sugar for an extra treat! This is perfect for guests. You’re welcome Kevin!
Okay… save me two, please!
Wow, only two? You have more will power than me! Have a great weekend Nancy. ❤️
This cookie reminds me of the Russian Tea Cake cookies I used to make years ago.😊👣
Yes it has so many different names. Also called the Mexican Wedding Cookie. Whatever the name, they are delicious..lol
Yes, they are!😊
Thanks for sharing because I lost my recipe and am skeptical of recipes on the web that I don’t know anyone who has tested it.
My granddaughter is going to help me make three different recipes this week and this will be one of them. We made Chocolate Chip yesterday.😊
Awww they will all taste extra good with her help!
Yes, food or baked goods taste much better when made with love!😊
I think these are similar to wedding cake cookies Diane? I like Pepperidge Farm wedding cake cookies – Pepperidge Farm cannot keep their cookies stocked on grocer’s shelves this year as people are scooping them up as fast as they hit the shelves. That surprised me as I thought people were baking more this year due to the pandemic.
Yes they are like the Mexican wedding cake cookies. I’m not sure Pepperidge Farms is selling out or they just aren’t making as many??? With social distancing a lot of companies have cut back but they do have good cookies…lol BTW made the front page with my blog!
Yes, the Mexican wedding cookies. No, not selling out but they said people were stocking up and they can’t have as many people in their factories making/packaging, etc. so they’ve cut back. They didn’t have the Christmas cookies out when I was last at the grocery store – I got extra Nutter Butters and have decorated them for Christmas and some gingerbread cookies. That is exciting Diane! I’m glad the photo shoot went well. Your grandchildren already thought you were a star – even more now! I am going to search for it now as I don’t think you’ll feature it in your blog.
I found it very easily – congrats Diane!! Your cheesy pasta taco casserole looks good – now I know why you have two peanut butter pies! That is exciting – see how many new followers you get now since the article was published yesterday!
I have already had people follow. It was a huge success. Thanks Linda!
That’s good news Diane – the woman did a great job showing your work-in-progress plus giving the recipe was a good idea too!
