Snowball Cookies without Nuts Recipe

Bite size cookies are a special treat.  Especially with a cup of Cuban coffee.  This Snowball Cookies without nuts recipe is so easy you will always have a treat on hand.  This recipe makes about 2 dozen.  If you need more, feel free to double or even triple the recipe.

Step 2

Mix butter and powdered sugar together.  Add vanilla and mix until blended.

Step 3

Add flour and mix until a soft dough forms.  I use a hand mixer here (love my KitchenAid Mixer – affiliate link).  Don’t fret if the mixture looks like a bunch of little pebbles for awhile.  Let the mixer do its job and it will turn into a soft dough.  Just takes a little bit of time.

Step 4

Using a small scoop, make 1 inch balls.  Bake 8 – 10 minutes until cookies are set, but not browned.

Step 5

Remove from oven and let cool a few minutes.  Then coat them in powdered sugar.  Instead of rolling the cookies in a bowl of sugar, I put the sugar in a bag and shake a few of the cookies at a time.  A whole lot less messy … trust me on this!

Step 6

Let the cookies cool completely and then shake in the powdered sugar again.  This gives the cookies a really thick and yummy layer of powdered sugar.  Store in an airtight container.  But, these probably won’t stick around long enough to be stored!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter; softened.  (1 stick)  I used salted.

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla.  I like my cookies to have a vanilla flavor, if you prefer cut the vanilla down to 1/2 teaspoon.

1 1/8 cup flour (I used all-purpose)

Plus:  1/2 to 3/4 cup powdered sugar for coating the cookies
