Just in case you haven't seen any snow in your neck of the woods, I made you some Snowball Cookies!
We actually did get to see some of that beautiful white powdery stuff this weekend. It's a rarity here in Georgia so we get really happy when it makes its way south!
Hubby and I were so excited to finally have some snow that we hopped in the car and headed north so that we could see even more! Haha..the further we drove the less we saw. We had more here at home. Oh well, we enjoyed our Saturday out together anyways.
Maybe making these Snowball Cookies today will act as a sort of "rain dance" for more SNOW!
Most recipes for these cookies call for chopped pecans but I usually don't care for a big crunch in my cookies, so I pulverized mine in my food processor.
After mixing dough, roll into one tablespoon size balls.
Bake cookies @ 325 degrees for approximately 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Mine were perfect at 21 minutes.
These are so good that you might not want to share.
But..you better or there may just be a Snowball Fight! ;o)
This really yummy recipe is just a slight variation from this one I found here.
1 cup (2 sticks) butter softened
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
2 Tablespoons vanilla
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans (I pulverized mine in my food processor)
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup -or enough- confectioners sugar for rolling cookies in twice.
Cream butter, confectioners sugar and vanilla.
Add flour and nuts mixing to combine.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Roll cookie dough into one tablespoon size balls and place on parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake @ 325 degrees for about 20 minutes or until just lightly browned. Mine were perfect at 21 minutes.
Remove cookies from pan and roll in confectioners sugar. Let cool and repeat.
Hubbykins said these are a repeat for sure!
Enjoy your Snowball Cookies!
