This is another of those easy, festive cookie recipes that is such a favorite at holiday gatherings. My Snow Balls are fun at Christmas parties, Easter gatherings, birthdays, club meetings, and for guests who just pop in. I have frozen these and pulled them out as needed.
3 ½ cups vanilla wafer crumbs
¼ cup butter, melted
¾ cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 cup pecans, chopped
½ cup Dr. Pepper
Mix vanilla wafer crumbs, melted butter, sifted powdered sugar, chopped pecans, and Dr. Pepper. Pinch a small amount of the mixture off and roll it into a very small ball. Using a fork, dip the balls in icing and then roll in flaked coconut.
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
2 teaspoons butter, melted
1/3 cups Dr. Pepper
¼ teaspoon vanilla
Baker’s flaked coconut
Measure sifted powdered sugar into a mixing bowl; add melted butter, Dr. Pepper, and vanilla.
Recipe will make about 6 dozen cookies.
I like to use a little less Dr. Pepper in the icing which makes it thicker.
If you want to freeze these small, beautiful delicacies, you can prepare them as indicated and place them about ½” apart on a cookie sheet or in a pan that will fit in your freezer. After the cookies are frozen, place them in quart or gallon zip-lock bags.
