This is a version of the classic Russian teacakes (a type of cookie).  The only difference is that these have chocolate chip in them.  These cookies seem perfect for a cold winter's day.  I'm aware that most people will relate these chocolate chip snowball cookies to Christmas, for a number of reasons. However, these cookies don't have the same effect for me.

Somehow, these snowball cookies only seem to remind me of being snowed in a log cabin, next to a warm open-flamed fireplace.  This light ,sweet, powder-covered, chocolate-chip-filled drops of heavenly chocolate kinda remind me of the snowballs I threw as a child, combined with the chocolate chip cookies my grandma used to bake. What could be more fun?


3/4 cup salted butter, softened

3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt

3 cups all-purpose flour

7 oz Nestlé Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels

5 oz Nestlé Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

powdered sugar (enough to cover the tops of the cookies)


1) Preheat oven to 375F.

2) Beat butters, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in flour; stir in morsels and pecans. Shape level 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough into 1 1/4-inch balls using a medium cookie scoop. Place on ungreased baking sheets.

3) Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned. Remove from oven. Sift powdered sugar over hot cookies on baking sheets. Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar, if desired. Store in airtight containers.
