Keto Snowball Cookies
These white flaky cookies with a walnut buttery crumb, are sometimes called Russian Teacake Cookies and other times known as Snowball Cookies (you can see why in the pictures). Whatever you call them, they are absolutely delicious!
We have revised the original recipe which has a lot of sugar plus coated in powdered sugar, to be sugar free, Keto friendly, and low carb🙌🏼 We often serve these to sugar loving friends and they are shocked they taste so amazing.
One of my favorite aspects of this recipe is being able to store extras in the freezer and thaw to serve in about 10 minutes....perfect for drop-in visitors. Personally, they always remind me of my grandmother who had a cute tin can of these cookies, in her freezer at all times❤️
Everyone who follows Stevia Select stevia recipes, knows that I am all about fast & easy. If there’s a shortcut to be taken, I will take it. I love to bake but don’t have a lot of spare time to do it and I’m sure many others are in the same boat. You’ll find most every sugar free recipe is uncomplicated and fits time restraints. This recipe is no different and comes together in a few steps by using a Ninja mixer with the sharp blade. I believe any blender would work. This helps eliminate the tedious task of chopping nuts.....the appliance does all the work👍🏼
*Note: Sub other nuts if desired. I have only tried pecans and they were equally delicious but any nut should work. Be sure to share any changes made in the comments so that we can all benefit ☺️
