12 Days of Christmas Cookies. Day Four - Snowballs

Snowballs, Roly Poly, Mexican Wedding Cookies. This is a popular recipe that goes by many different names. It is always the first cookie I bake when I start the Christmas Cookie Baking. It is my Mom's recipe and every year I always wish I had made more of them. A perfect little bite of a shortbread cookie that is baked and then rolled in confectionary sugar. It is simply a perfect cookie.



1 cup softened butter

1/2 sifted confectionary sugar

2 1/4 cup shifted flour

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 chopped walnuts

1/4 tsp salt


My recipe stops at the ingredient list.

I love my Mom's recipes.

Here is what you do -

Preheat ove to 400˚

Mix the butter and sugar until well blended.

Mix in the vanilla and flour and salt and walnuts.

Shape into small balls and place on baking sheet.

Bake 10 - 12 minutes.

Remove from oven and roll in confectionary sugar.

Yes this is additional sugar to the 1/2 cup in the ingredients list.

Best to do this when the cookies are hot out of the oven.

It covers them in a sugary soft coating.
