Snowball Cookies

By: Luz Zamudio

As the holidays approach us and we run out of things to do, baking is the answer. Food is always the answer. My recommendation for the upcoming winter dates is to make delicious snowball cookies. They actually have like a million names like Mexican Wedding cookies and Russian teacakes; whatever you want to call them, this is a tasty, quick, holiday recipe for those of us with a sweet tooth.

Ingredients:

– 1 cup of softened butter
– 1/2 cup powdered sugar
– 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
– 2 cups all purpose flour
– 1/8 tsp sea salt
– 2 cups chopped walnuts
– 1 cup powdered sugar (to roll cookies in after baking)
Procedure:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Beat butter and the half cup of powdered sugar. Add vanilla.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and nuts.
4. Stir the dough in the second bowl to the sugar mixture.
5. Roll the dough into small balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until slightly browned.

6. While hot, roll them in the remaining cup of powdered sugar. Cool. Sprinkle a bit more powdered sugar on top to give it a “snowy” look.

After following all the previous steps, your cookies should look like cute little powder balls of dough, and they will be finished and ready to eat. Enjoy!
