Snowball Cookies

I love making snowball cookies. They are truly one of the easiest recipes out there and you can make them with virtually any flavor and a variety of add-ins. There’s a few things that I do with my snowball cookies that I think you should do too.

Snowball Cookie Tips

  • One. I chill my dough. I know. We’re busy, we don’t have a lot of time, etc., etc. But, if you want a more rounded snowball cookie, chilling the dough definitely helps.

  • Two. I make my cookies small. Like, pop in your mouth kind of small. Wanna know why? Envision what happens when you take a bite out of one of these delectable cookies…that’s right. Your little black dress, or, in my case, my little black PJs, are instantly covered in a fine dusting of powdered sugar. Festive? Yes. Classy? No.  Keep these bad boys small and your clothes and floor will thank you.
  • Three. I am all about a double coating of powdered sugar. Many people like to gently dust the powdered sugar on after the cookies have cooled. Mmhhmm, you people are not my people. I like to dust my cookies with powdered sugar about 5 minutes after they come out of the oven and then, once cooled, roll them around in a bowl of powdered sugar until they are liberally coated.

Using a dusting wand makes a lot less mess and an more even coating. Get one.

  • Note: do not roll the cookies until they have completely cooled. These cookies are fragile when warm and will just completely fall apart on you.

Food Coloring – Optional

So you’ll notice the pink interior…totally optional. I thought I was adding red food coloring because, well, the lid to my food color was red. But it was really pink. Thank you Wilton for confusing me. No really, I kinda love the pink! Would be perfect for Valentine’s too! (Make sure you use gel food coloring – it’s my favorite!)

I added some Andes Peppermint Baking Chips to the dough and I love the extra peppermint-y flavor they give these cookies!
