Hello everyone, the first Sunday of Advent is here and tomorrow the calendar will show “December”… Christmas is getting closer and closer.
I hope you’ll all have a good Sunday, and that none of you are lonely.
Christmas is a wonderful holiday for many of us, but there are people out there who are lonely and unhappy, some may not even have enough money to buy their children a Christmas present.
I hope that you lovely readers will spread some joy to those who don’t have much, or to those who are lonely. Spreading some Christmas joy is the best present you can give to yourself.
These snowball cookies are perfect for Christmas, lovely, soft cookies with chocolate and walnuts, covered in a cloud of powdered sugar…
Snowball cookes are pretty on your Christmas table, and the flavor is just amazing. Take a bite, and it’ll melt in your mouth…
Snowball Cookies (yield: 50-60 stk)
- 1 1/2 cup (340 g) unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup (100 g) powdered sugar
- 2 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon (330 g) all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 9 oz. (250 g) chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
- 3 1/2 oz. (100 g) walnuts or other nuts, chopped
- 1 tablespoons vanilla extract
- extra powdered sugar, for dusting.
Preheat the oven to 190 °C.
Put the butter and powdered sugar into a mixing bowl and beat until fluffy.
Add the flour and vanilla and beat for another minute.
Stir in the chocolate and chopped walnuts.
Make small balls from the dough, about 1 tablespoon dough per ball, and arrange onto lined baking trays.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-14 minutes.
Tip: I use the fan setting when baking these cookes, that will make them more “fluffy”.
Remove the cookies from the oven and dust liberally with powdered sugar. Repeat when the cookes have cooled.
Wrap or put in a pretty box – the perfect Christmas hostess present!
I hope you are tempted…
Hugs from me to you.
