Prepared with only five ingredients, Sweetened Condensed Milk Snowballs are light and fluffy, and only slightly sweet. They look plain and drab, but they are quite delicious, very easy to make, and extremely budget friendly too!
There’s always that one person who will lean over your beautiful Christmas cookie platter, looking for a cookie that has no nuts, no chocolate, no sprinkles, etc. They prefer simple sweets without all of the added, fussy bits. For that person in your family, prepare these Sweetened Condensed Milk Snowballs. In fact, you could make two batches – make the plain one you see pictured here, and one with your favourite holiday recipe add-ins!
I absolutely love to make these cookies. They’re just so easy to make! Not only do you get to mix everything together in just one bowl, but there’s no need to roll the dough into balls, or to use a rolling pin. Just use a cookie scoop to portion out the cookie dough, and set them right onto your prepared baking sheet. They hold their shape in the oven, and bake up light and airy.
There are probably a million Christmas cookies that have the word “snowballs” in the title. In fact, I have a few of them right here at Lord Byron’s Kitchen. The most popular of the snowball recipes that I have are my Traditional Newfoundland Snowballs. I prepare a batch of those every year. They make a great addition to a cookie platter or a cookie tin that you prepare for friends and neighbours. A few weeks ago, I posted another snowball-type of recipe in my 12 Truffles of Christmas series. If you missed it, my Cherry Snowball Truffles can be found here.
