Christmas Snowballs

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups sifted all purpose flour
  • 1 cup ground almonds or walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Cream butter and sugar together. Add flour, ground nuts, and vanilla and mix well.

Form into small balls and place on greased* cookie sheet. Bake at 325° for 35 minutes.

Roll in powdered sugar to coat while still hot. Cool completely on rack and store in airtight container. Best when made a week or two ahead.


*I use an ungreased nonstick cookie sheet and bake until the bottoms are golden brown.
