💡Tips

1. Finely Chop the Walnuts

When preparing the walnuts for this keto snowball cookie recipe, it’s important to finely chop them, almost to the point of grinding. This ensures that the walnuts are evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough, providing a consistent nutty flavor and texture in every bite.

2. Use Room Temperature Butter

When creaming the butter and sweetener together, it’s essential to use room temperature butter. This allows the butter to incorporate more easily with the sweetener, creating a light and fluffy mixture that will result in tender cookies.

If the butter is too cold, it will be difficult to beat and may result in dense, heavy cookies. On the other hand, if the butter is too soft or melted, it will not cream properly with the sweetener, leading to flat and greasy cookies.

3. Allow Cookies to Cool Completely Before Rolling in Powdered Sweetener

After baking, it’s important to let the snowball cookies cool completely before rolling them in the powdered sweetener. If the cookies are still warm, the sweetener will melt and become sticky, creating a messy appearance and altering the texture of the cookies.

Allowing the cookies to cool completely ensures that the powdered sweetener adheres properly, creating a beautiful, snow-like coating.
