  • Confectioners’ Sugar (1/2 cup)

Wet Ingredients:

  • Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup, softened)
  • Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon)

Coating:

  • Confectioners’ Sugar (1 cup, for rolling)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat and Prepare:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  2. Mix the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, finely chopped pecans or walnuts, and confectioners’ sugar. This forms the base of your delectable snowball cookies.
  3. Cream the Wet Ingredients:
    • In another bowl, cream together the softened unsalted butter and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. This ensures a smooth and cohesive cookie dough.
  4. Combine and Form Dough:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft and pliable dough forms. Be cautious not to overmix, maintaining the delicate texture of the cookies.
  5. Shape into Balls:
    • Take small portions of the dough and roll them into bite-sized balls. Place each ball on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between them to allow for expansion.
  6. Bake to Perfection:
    • Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges turn a light golden brown. Keep a watchful eye to prevent over-baking and ensure a soft and chewy center.
  7. Roll in Confectioners’ Sugar:
    • Once baked, let the cookies cool slightly. While they are still warm, gently roll each cookie in the additional confectioners’ sugar, coating them generously for that signature snowball appearance.
  8. Cool Completely:
    • Allow the cookies to cool completely on a wire rack before serving or storing. This helps them set and ensures the perfect texture.

Useful Information:

  • Nutty Alternatives: Experiment with different nuts like almonds or hazelnuts to add a unique twist to your snowball cookies.
  • Storage Tips: Keep your 2-Point Snowball Cookies in an airtight container to maintain their freshness. They can last for several days, making them a convenient treat for your sweet cravings.
