Directions

Snowball Cookies

10 Steps

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, mix flour, pecans and salt. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    Beat butter, vanilla, orange zest and powdered sugar with a mixer until creamy.

  • Step 4

    Lower mixer speed and add dry ingredients to butter and sugar mixture.

  • Step 5

    Refrigerate dough for 15 minutes to cool and to make slightly firm so that it is easier to roll.

  • Step 6

    Use your tablespoon to help form 1 inch balls using your palms to roll them.

  • Step 7

    Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes or until bottom edges of cookies are lightly browned.

  • Step 8

    Cool a few minutes until you're able to handle the cookies. Roll in powdered sugar and place on a rack to cool completely.

  • Step 9

    After the cookies have cooled completely roll them in powdered sugar again. The cookies are not that sweet without the powdered sugar coating so this step is essential and should absolutely not be skipped.

  • Step 10

    Enjoy!
