Perhaps the Official Cookie Of Christmas called Christmas Snowballs, they're an irresistible cookie Butter Maid knows as a Butterball. A super delicious, melt in your mouth, shortbread type butter cookie with toasted walnuts. We hand chop fresh walnuts, toast them to perfection, and marry them to our hand made sweet cream buttery dough. This cookie bakes to a slight shortbread like crunch, then is tossed in confectioner's powdered sugar. They're very popular across many cultures, daily with coffee and tea or for special occasions, and have taken names accordingly; Russian Tea Cake Cookies, Mexican Wedding Cookies Polvorones and variations of Mantecados are extremely popular in Spain.

Size: Cookies are hand made and therefore vary in size & weight, approximately 12 oz per box.

These were "melt in your mouth" good. Loved every bite. Was so glad the grandkids didn't want any. But they loved the lemon kolachi. It was gone quickly.

Our mother, who was from Pennsylvanian, would make these cookies every Christmas. When she passed it was a distant wonderful memory of that time...until I found Butter Maid Bakery! What a wonderful holiday treat that I can now pass on to my grand kids!

My grandma was born in Hungary. These treats taste exactly like her walnut "snowballs". I thought I would never taste them again. My Thanksgiving house guests could not stop eating them. Glad I learned about Butter Maid.

Walnut Butterballs aka Russian tea cookies
The moment I tasted these cookies, I was transported to my happy childhood. My Aunt Myra was the multitalented baker of our family and these cookies were as good as her divine offerings at Christmas! The secret ingredients are butter and walnuts and there was no shortage of either. This order was my first from Butter Maid, but not my last. A dozen or two.. to you from you with love best describes these wonderful cookies.

I used to make these cookies when I was younger and they always got eaten up so fast. These cookies are almost exactly what I used to make except I put a maraschino cherry in the middle before baking them. I loved these cookies and I will buy them again.

Butterballs/walnut cookies
Sadly, I did not care for these. For me, they were not as sweet as I expected and some of them were almost doughy. Some seemed to need another two or three minutes longer in the oven. Loved the other products I have received (nutrolls and lady locks/mini cream horns).

when I was a baby, they called me Butterball! anyway, they were great. They would melt in your mouth much better if the nuts were ground much finer. Do that and I will buy lots more. *****

Butter Maid cookies are always awesome. However, I couldn't eat these until I scraped the waaaayyyyy too much confectioner's sugar off. If you like confectioner's sugar, these are for you.

Hi. I put down cookies because I have tried most of them. I am amazed how quick they arrive and what great condition they are in. When I have a special occasion coming up, I buy ahead of time and freeze them. The freezing does not take away the flavor. They do their best to make you happy.
I already have my Thanksgiving cookies...and I only ate 2. LOL. STAR RATING ..The best.natch is 10.

Our Customers Say...

I ordered Kolachi cookies for my mother's 85th birthday with the hopes that they would be like the ones her Hungarian mother used to make when she was young. She LOVED them and said they were exactly like the ones her mother made. We were so impressed with how quickly they shipped and how delicious they were.
