Snow Balls – A Delicious Melt In Your Mouth Cookie Recipe – Kid Friendly Things To Do .com

Snowball Cookies

We just finished making these delicious snow ball cookies for teacher gifts! They are all sealed away in see through containers. So pretty, tempting, and torturously staring at us! I did have four left over to give the kids a taste. Big mistake! I was right back in the kitchen making 2 dozen more.  Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 cup of butter softened
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 T water
  • 1 t of almond extract
  • 2 & 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of chopped, slivered almonds
  • Bowl of powdered sugar – about 2 cups

Now, on to the cookies!: This makes about 4 dozen! 🙂

  • Delicious Snow Ball Cookie Recipe
  • Mix butter and sugar until well blended
  • Add water, & almond extract, and again mix until well blended
  • Add flour, & chopped-slivered almonds and mix

  • Roll the dough into little snow balls – about and inch in diameter and plop them down on an ungreased baking sheet
  • Don’t worry about them spreading. You can put more than a dozen on the sheet. They’ll puff up, a bit, but you can put plenty on the sheet as long as you leave a little room between each one – about an inch buffer
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes

  • When they are done, and they have cooled for a few minutes, plop a few at a time into the bowl of powdered sugar and coat them with sugar
  • Snowball Cookies
  • Set them down on a surface to cool the rest of the way
  • Enjoy!
