These are technically Mexican Wedding Cakes or Russian Teacakes, but my grandmother gave up on us calling them that years ago,
This recipe is snowball perfection! Reviewers who don’t follow this to the tee are missing out. I sell these in my shop and they fly out the door. Suggestions – Use cookie scoop #60 and bake until just golden, approx 11 – 12 minutes and immediately toss in generous amount of confectioners sugar. Lift out by the bottom with fork, tap, and then place into 8AA cupcake liners. Wonderful!
