Certainly! Here’s a straightforward recipe for Snowball Cookies:


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, plus extra for coating
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cup chopped nuts (such as pecans, walnuts, or almonds)


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 376°F (180°C).
  2. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add Vanilla and Flour: Mix in the vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour to the creamed mixture, mixing until a dough forms.
  4. Fold in Nuts: Gently fold in the chopped nuts until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  5. Shape Dough: Take small portions of the dough and roll them into 1-inch balls using your hands. Place the balls on an ungreased baking sheet, spacing them about 1 inch apart.
  6. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are set but not browned.
  7. Cool: Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes. While they’re still warm, roll each cookie in powdered sugar until coated all over.
  8. Second Coating (Optional): Once the cookies have cooled completely, you can give them a second coating of powdered sugar for extra sweetness and a snowy appearance.

  1. Serve: Snowball cookies are best enjoyed at room temperature. Serve them on a platter or in a cookie tin for a delightful treat.
