Holiday Snowball Cookies

Holiday snowball cookies

My full time job has been keeping me very busy these months but now that the holiday season has approached, I am having a little break with my family on the mountains which means I have time to bake again!  I remember a friend gave me these holiday snowball cookies last year and they tasted sooo good so I searched for the recipe and found it on the ‘Very Best Baking by Nestle’ website.  It was such a simple recipe and didn’t take too much effort.


1½ cups (3 sticks) Butter (softened)
¾ cup Powdered sugar
1 Tbsp Vanilla extract
½ tsp Salt
3 cups All purpose flour
1 2/3 cups (10oz pkg) Nestle Toll House Holiday Morsels
½ cup Finely ground almonds
Extra powdered sugar (for sprinkling on top)


  1. Preheat oven to 375◦F.
  2. Beat butter, sugar, vanilla extract and salt in a large mixer bowl until creamy.  Gradually beat in flour; stir in morsels and nuts.  Shape level tablespoons of dough into 1 1/4-inch balls.  Place on ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned.  Remove from oven.  Sift powdered sugar over hot cookies on baking sheets.
  4. Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.  Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar, if desired.
