Snowball Cookies

Snowball Cookies

We’re currently in that weird limbo between Christmas & New Years where we still still sleep in past lunch time

& sugar is a main food group & kale is just a slogan on a t-shirt.

I love this time of year

To stay in the spirt of the last days of 2017-

I thought we’d celebrate how terrible of a year it was, by treating our body terribly with another baked good

I’m really selling you on these aren’t I?

Snowballs

Mexican wedding cookies

Russian tea cakes

Italian butter nuts

Butterballs

whatever you call them- they’re easy & a crowd pleaser (or a solo endeavor- I’m not here to judge you) 

 


Snowball Cookies

Makes 30-36 cookies


INGREDIENTS

1 cup butter (soft)

1/2 powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

2 & 1/4 cup flour

1 cup finely chopped pecans (I like using roasted & unsalted)

1 cup powdered sugar for dusting

 


INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • In a stand mixer (or large bowl with a hand mixer) cream together butter & powdered sugar
  • Once combined- turn the mixer to low & slowly add in salt, flour, vanilla & pecans
  • When dough has formed you can either begin to roll balls immediately, or let it set in the fridge for an hour
  • Using a spoon, a small cookie scoop or just your hands – shape dough into 1 inch balls
  • Place balls a few inches apart on lined cookie sheet & bake for 10-11 minutes
  • While the balls are still warm to the touch (but not too hot to handle) roll in powdered sugar until coated- it may take a few coats!
  • Set them aside to co0l & enjoy!

    Hi Meghan !! I love your blog and your cooking videos!! I’m from Greece and it is a tradition to have these snowball cookies at Christmas time. We call them “kourampiedes”. They are also served with another cookie-like recipe I think you should try. They are called “melomakarona” and they are essentially honey cookies but better. I would love it if you could try them ! Happy Holidays 🎄❤️
