Our post Christmas plans have gone a little topsy turvey because of the weather, so why not fully embrace the snow with snowball cookies?

My Mom always made them, but now they are something I make each year at Christmas. I once told you it was unlikely for you to find recipes here – but I thought today I would make an exception since snowball cookies seem so appropriate today!

Set oven to 400 degrees

- 1 cup of butter – softened
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 2 1/2 cups of sifted flour (truth I never sift!)
- 3/4 cup of finely chopped walnuts
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- additional sugar and powdered sugar for rolling baked cookies I

- Cream butter and sugar thoroughly

- Add salt and vanilla and blend

- Add flour and blend well (hint: after some blending I wash my hands thoroughly and use my hands to blend into a dough)

- Stir in nuts

- Form into 1 inch balls

- Bake 14 – 17 minutes until lightly brown on an ungreased tray.

- In a bag mix equal parts sugar and powdered sugar. Roll cookies in mix while still hot.

Notes: I always make a double batch. This time, for the second batch I used half chopped walnuts and half chopped almonds. I added colored sugar to the almond batch so that I knew the difference.

So now when our family comes off the sledding hill they will be ready for some cookies

Even if the “greasing of the toboggan” experiment didn’t work out.

About Finding Home

My name is Laura and I have been running a small interior decorating business since 2004. I have always had a love for decorating but I never fully realized it until about 10 years ago. I live in New York with my husband and two daughters. They support me and encourage me at every turn. I have always loved the “hunt” for the next treasure, especially when you have to get down and dirty to discover it. I feel like it is time to start taking my business in a new direction. I am not sure exactly what that will be, but this blog is about that journey. About finding a sense of home, a place where we belong and can most be ourselves. Thank you for being part of my journey.
