Snowball cookies

It is holiday baking and over the next few days I will be sharing some of my favorites as I dig through my recipe file and finish off my holiday baking. As I mentioned before I make lots and lots of cookies each year. I give them as gifts to everyone

To kick things off, a traditional favorite. I like this version because it is more kid-friendly. The dough holds up well to little hands.

Snowball Surprise
Great recipe to make with children

½ cup butter softened
¼ cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 ¼ cup flour
Chocolate Kisses
Powder Sugar Icing
Decorative Sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl beat butter for 30seconds. Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat in Flour.

  1. Shape 1 teaspoon of dough into a ball. Press a kiss into the ball and enclose the chocolate in dough. Repeat with remaining dough. Place balls on ungreased cookie sheet.
  2. Bake in preheated oven for 12-14 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Transfer to wire rack and let cool. Dip cooled cookies in powdered sugar icing. Sprinkle with decorations.

Layer cookies between waked paper in an airtight container.
Store at room temperature for up to 3 days
Freeze unfrosted cookies for up to 3 months. Thaw cookies. Dip in frosting


  1. Very cool! I bet the kids would love to make them!

    thanks for participating in the virtual cookie exchange!

    My cookie line-up is a little chocolate heavy this year....but is that a bad thing? I will definitely try these!
