  • Heat oven to 350°F. Combine flour and pecans; set aside. Mix butter and sugar until well blended. Add water, vanilla and salt; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, stirring until well blended after each addition. Shape into 1-inch balls; place on ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake 20 min. or until edges are golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
  • Melt semi-sweet chocolate as directed on package. Dip each cookie halfway into melted chocolate, then press top lightly into grated white chocolate to create a snowy appearance. Let stand until set.

Size Wise

Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How to Grate Chocolate

Use a box grater to grate an unwrapped square of room-temperature chocolate onto a sheet of wax paper. Use immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made these cookies tonight and they remind me of a similar recipe I have for thumbprints. I made these cookies tonight and they remind me of a similar recipe I have for thumbprints. I thought they were really easy to make (simple ingredients). I did change one thing and my husband and I think it makes them taste so much better. I dipped them in a powdered sugar & milk icing and then dipped them in the grated white chocolate. They looked like little snowballs! They were really pretty and tasted much better than the choc dip. The dough is not that sweet so the powdered sugar icing gives it a great taste! I will make these for Christmas and call them "snowballs" because that is exactly what they look like!!

I made these for my son's class and called them snow caps. The kids loved them and the adults thought I spent so much time making them. I would make these again ~ in fact I am making more for a Christmas church pot luck !!

I've been baking these for the past 5 years or so and they always dissapear really quick. You have to like the hard cookies to like these. Don't expect them to get chewey on the inside. Very delicious and I'll be making them this weekend with my 2 year old son now :)

The cookie dough wasn't working like planned and had to be refridgerated because it was very crumbly and wouldn't stick. After the cookie was made, it didn't look too appealing. Won't make again.

Because I read that the white chocolate melts, I chop extra nuts and dip the cookies in those. So they still look 'snow capped'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cookies turned out great! The cookies turned out great! The only adjustments i made were using 4 squares of semi-sweet baking chocolate and 2 squares of white baking chocolate. After cooking them i thought they looked a little hard but after tasting them you couldn't tell!

I found the dough mix to be a bit dry and too crumbly so I used 2-sticks of margarine as opposed to 1 1/2. I then followed the directions. The cookies are delicious!!! I can't believe they were so easy to make and came out so pretty. Thank you.
