    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 speed and gradually add flour and mix on low until dough forms. If dough seems too wet, add an extra tablespoon or two of flour.

    Roll dough into 1 1/2-inch size balls. Place balls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for about 12 – 15 minutes or until cookies turn slightly golden brown but don’t over cook.

    Remove cookies from cookie sheet to a cooling rack. Cool for a minute or two. Place powdered sugar in a bowl and roll the warm cookies in the powdered sugar. Set cookies aside to cool and then roll once more in powdered sugar.

    Note: Be sure to roll balls large enough or they may flatten out when they bake.
