Snowball cookies are a family favorite around the holidays. My aunt makes a ton of them for Christmas (she seriously makes a freezer full of cookies) and traditional Snowball Cookies are one of them. My other favorite her family makes is Nutmeg Logs. There is just something about those cookies that makes the holidays feel special.

I knew that I wanted to make a Fall version of those classic cookies and incorporated pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice and walnuts. The cookie dough is somewhat wet, and a cookie scoop is definitely helpful (see my recommendations below). The cookies need to be rolled in a mixture of powdered sugar and pumpkin spice, and can then be served or frozen.

We freeze these cookies all the time, and waxed paper is great at separating the layers. Also, before serving, I re-roll them in the powdered sugar pumpkin spice mixture, to make sure they are fully coated. I love the spice in these cookies, it gives it a great warming Fall flavor. Pecans are used in snowball cookies fairly often, but the walnuts give it a different taste. You can have pecans, walnuts, or do a mixture of both, depending on your preference. I hope you enjoy some of my Pumpkin Pie Spice Snowball Cookies this holiday season.
