"Snowball" Cookies

20 MIN
10 MIN
4 dozen



  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients with a wooden spoon.
  3. With slightly wet hands, shape the coconut mixture into 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls (about 1 tbsp each). Place the balls on the baking sheets, spacing them evenly.
  4. Bake one sheet at a time for about 10 minutes or until the cookies begin to brown. Let them cool on the baking sheets.


To give a snowy look to your cookies, dust them with icing sugar using a small sieve.

This recipe is from My lil’ Ricardo.


  1. Too runny to form balls. I’ll add more ingredients to see if it helps. Perhaps cornstarch??

  2. In your Best cookies book it says 280gr of sweetened shredded coconut and here it says 400gr of unsweetened shredded coconut so I am confused which one is right? And everybody thinks we should use more flour the quantities listed still incorrect it says 1/4 cup..

  3. I modified the flour ( 1 cup instead) and still runny. Was not able to make balls. I will try next time with 1/2 can of condensed milk.

  4. The flour quantity is still wrong. Need at least a cup.

  5. I was soo excited but as mentionned about, qty is not right to forma balls. Should it be 1 1/4 cups flour?

  6. The recipe in the magazine includes flour and egg whites and cannot be formed into balls as it is too runny. This is different.
