Snowball Cookie Recipe

Hello, luvs!

Today I am sharing one of my all time favourite cookie/Christmas recipes. They are usually called snowball cookies but they're also known as Russian tea cakes or Mexican wedding cakes. No matter, these little biscuits are delicious and a perfect balance between sweet and salty. Yum!

Ingredients

2 cups flour

1 1/2 cup walnuts

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter

1/3 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

 

Instructions

First, preheat oven to 162C and line a baking sheet with baking paper. In a medium/small bowl, mix flour and salt. Finely chop the walnuts and add to the dry mixture. In a larger bowl, cream the butter and sugar until lighter in colour and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla then add the dry mixture and beat at a slow speed til a dough starts to form. If it is too dry, just use your hands to form a dough. Roll the dough into a tablespoon sized ball and place on your prepared baking paper. They will only spread a little so you can put them pretty close together. Bake for 17 to 19 minutes, until the tops are pale golden and the bottoms are brown. Make sure to rotate the baking tray halfway through the baking time. Let the cookies cool for about 30 minutes on a wire rack, during this time you can put the powdered sugar in a bag. Place 3 cookies at a time in the bag and gently toss them to cover them in the sugar before shaking off the excess. Let the cookies sit an hour to ten hours before sprinkling more powdered sugar over the cookies to perfect them. And voila! Enjoy!

 

Love,

Sofia
