When I was a kid, nothing said Christmas like mum's first batch of snowball cookies. She would make them for us, family, and friends. We even left some out for Santa. These are really easy cookies and a good recipe if you have youngsters around who want to help you cook.
-2 cups flour
-pinch of salt
-3/4 cup softened butter (a stick and a half, unsalted)
-1/2 cup sugar
-1 large egg
-1 tsp vanilla
-1 cup of chopped walnuts
powdered sugar (about 3/4 of a cup)
Preheat oven to 350F, line one large cookie sheet with silicon sheet or parchment paper.
In a stand mixer or in a bowl and using a hand mixer, cream together the sugar and the butter. Add in egg and vanilla until well incorporated. Slowly add in flour and salt until combined. With a wooden spoon stir the walnuts in. Using your hands, roll the dough into smallish balls--a few bits. Recipe should make about 24 balls.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Dump powdered sugar into a pie plate. When cookies are done, allow them to cool a bit on a rack. You want them warm, but not too hot to handle.
Roll the warm balls around in the powdered sugar and put them on a nicer plate than I did. (Really? Why did I choose a white plate? I have a lovely green plate. Ugh).
