This one has popped up on my Facebook feed a couple times and I thought I’d share it. Shout out to Alice White for sharing it with me!
no bake – cream cheese, coconut, snowball’s recipe
No Bake Snowball Cookies
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened.
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, well drained.
1 cup chopped pecans
3 cups flaked coconut.
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and pineapple until combined then fold in the pecans. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Take out of refrigerator and roll into 1-inch balls; then roll the balls in the coconut. DO NOT TASTE TEST.
Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
Yield: about 2 dozen.
***If you actually follow the instructions, and don’t try “taste testing” before the product is finished, you’ll love this recipe. A few
helpful hints to remember when making this recipe:
a. An inch is much smaller than you think, use ruler to measure an inch.
b. After you mix the drained crushed pineapple and softened cream cheese, don’t taste it.
c. After you shape the balls, roll them in coconut, don’t taste them. It is now cream cheese, pineapple, pecans and coconut.
If you made your snowballs SMALL, and they’ve chilled over night (or at least 6 hours), the pineapple and cream cheese have “married”, and are delicious.
If you’re expecting coconut macaroons, perhaps you should look for a recipe for coconut macaroons. These aren’t really cookies, they’re more like palate cleansers. A bright little nibble, quite delicious, and a hit at the office party.
