Pumpkin Spice Snowballs are going to be this season’s BEST cookie recipe, I promise you that! These are a classic Snowball Cookie filled with warm pumpkin spices, perfect for fall.
Do you call these Snowballs? Or do you call them Russian Teacakes? Or wedding cookies? Whatever you call them, I have several recipes for different versions and these are my favorite.

Why you’ll love Pumpkin Spice Snowballs
These cookies have so many names: Snowballs, Butter Balls, Wedding Cookies, Teacakes…and probably more I don’t know about. Every culture has a version (Russian Teacakes, Mexican Wedding Cookies, etc.) but they’re all pretty much the same: a buttery sweet cookie with chopped nuts rolled in powdered sugar.
My mom’s Russian Teacake recipe was the first version of snowball cookies I ever made. We make them every year, plain, the basic recipe, at Christmas. In fact, my mom makes them multiple times a year. Some of her friends request them constantly so she’s always either making them or pulling some out of the freezer to serve.
Long ago I decided to take her recipe and make it my own and I just ran with it. I’ve made more versions of snowball cookies than I can count, including Chocolate Snowballs and Stuffed Snowballs. This little cookie recipe is super adaptable to so many flavors and one of my absolute favorites is this one right here.
Pumpkin Spice Snowballs are the classic Butter Ball cookie recipe with pecans and pumpkin pie spice for a warm and delicious fall cookie recipe.
