#12DaysofCookies: Snowball Cookies

The race is on to our second annual Cookie Swap for a Cause, and we hope you're as excited as we are. In case you haven't chosen your recipe yet (or if you're one of those over-achievers like I am who plans to make several different batches of cookies), we're bringing you some cookie inspiration from across the blogosphere. Today, Judi and Nicole from Some Kitchen Stories share a recipe for snowball cookies. Yum!

Snowball Cookies

Yield: about 4 dozen 1” cookies
Total Time: Chill for 1 hour, Bake for 10-12 min.

1 Cup of butter, room temperature
1/2 Cup of sifted confectioner’s sugar, more for rolling
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 Cup of flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
3/4 Cup of finely chopped nuts

  1. In a bowl, cream butter, sugar and vanilla together until light and fluffy.
  2. Measure flour into a bowl (use dipping method) with salt, blend. Add to sugar mixture until just combined.
  3. Stir in nuts.
  4. Chill dough for at least an hour. If leaving it overnight, take it out of the fridge and let it sit out for a bit to loosen up before rolling out.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  6. Roll dough into 1” balls. Bake on ungreased baking sheets for 10-12 minutes until set but not brown.
  7. While still warm, roll in confectioner’s sugar.
  8. Let cool. Roll in sugar again.
