Christmas Snowball Cookies – Holiday and Christmas Cookie Recipes

Christmas Snowball Cookies - Holiday and Christmas Cookie Recipes

Forget your normal Christmas Cookies! These shortbread cookies, that I call snowball cookies, are also called wedding cookies and vienna cookies or even powdered nutballs. No matter what you call them, these cookies are perfect for Christmas or any holiday baking and giving, but they are so good you may not want to give them away. Watch my video for a lot more variations on what to call these delicious cookies. The recipe can be found below the video. Sugar’s Snowball Christmas Cookies Prep Time: 40 minutes Start to Finish: 1 hour 15 minutes Servings: 3-4 dozen cookies Ingredients: 2 sticks of butter 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (if dough seems too wet add an extra tablespoon or two) 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans 1 cup powdered sugar Directions: Melt butter in saucepan over medium high heat then add chopped pecans. Continue cooking and stirring until butter melts and starts to turn brown (around 3 minutes). Butter will get foamy as it cooks so gently stir to prevent the nuts from burning. Remove from heat and pour into a bowl. Refrigerate until mixture is cooled (approximately 20 – 30 minutes). (Make Sure Butter Nut Mixture is COOL before using or cookies will flatten out when they bake) Heat oven to 350°F. Combine cooled browned butter pecan mixture and granulated sugar in large bowl. With an electric mixer, beat on medium speed until mixed well. Add vanilla, and cinnamon until combined. Reduce

  16. CookingwithSugarTV says:

    Good luck. If the dough is too dry add an egg and if it’s too wet add a little extra flour. Baking is tricky depending on where you live. I’m sure they will be great. XXOO
