Snowball Cookies

It’s Day 8 of our 25 Days of Christmas celebration, and today we have one of my favorite Christmas treats – Snowball Cookies! You can’t really go wrong with these delicate melt-in-your-mouth morsels of sweet deliciousness! A couple years ago, I shared a recipe for a gluten free version made with almond flour, and they are amazing. But these ones are awesome, as well, and you don’t have to buy any special ingredients (almond flour is expensive!).

Snowball Cookies | A Mother Thing

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 C unsalted butter
1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 C flour
1/4 tsp salt
powdered sugar for rolling

Snowball Cookies | A Mother Thing

First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees, and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix together the butter with the powdered sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add in your flour and salt and continue to mix until the dough combines.

You may need to put the dough in the fridge so that you can more easily work with it.

Use a small ice cream scoop to make the dough into balls, or simply roll small bits between your hands and then place on your cookie sheet. Bake for 7-8 minutes until the bottoms are lightly brown.

While the cookies are still warm, roll them in a bowl of powdered sugar until nicely coated and then leave on a wire rack to cool.
