12 Days of Christmas: Day 1- Snowball Cookies

This year, my fabulous mother had the idea to make one different kind of cookie each day for the 12 days of Christmas. Starting today, we are going to make cookies each day until Christmas. I will post what kind of cookie we made that day. AND if your your lucky I might post the recipe for that cookie. ;) Sounds good? Good. :)
(BTW: My Mom has a cooking blog where she posts all sorts of recipes, so go here if you want to check it out!)


Day 1- Snowball Cookies

Mmm, looks delicious and really easy to make!





Here's the recipe:

Preparation time: 30 minutes
Baking time: 18 minutes

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups finely chopped pecas
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
   Powdered sugar

  • Heat oven to 325 degrees. In large mixer bowl combine all ingredients except powdered sugar. Beat at low speed until well mixed.

  • Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1 inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake for 18 to 25 minutes or until very lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes; roll in powdered sugar while still warm and again when cool. 3 dozen cookies
**I found this recipe in the Land O Lakes-Favorite Holiday Cookies recipe book.**
