With Christmas right around the corner, it is time to start planning what tasty treats you are going to bake. You do not want to be the person who brings store-bought cookies to the party. That is why I am here to help. This snowball cookie recipe will please even the pickiest of crowds. In just 30 minutes, your cookies will be baked to perfection and ready to be eaten.


1 cup all-purpose flour

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 ½ cups finely chopped walnuts

1 pinch kosher salt

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

½ cup chopped and softened butter

1 cup powdered sugar

*Helpful tip: Do not melt the butter in the microwave. Use room-temperature butter. Otherwise, your cookies may turn out flat.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add flour, sugar, walnuts, salt, vanilla, and butter into a large bowl. Mix the ingredients using your hands.
  3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Roll the dough into small spheres and place them on the cookie sheet.
  5. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and let the cookies bake for 15 minutes.
  6. After taking the cookies out of the oven, let them partially cool (they should be warm but cool enough to hold). Then roll them in powdered sugar, covering the whole cookie.
  7. Place the cookies on a cooling rack to finish cooling.
  8. Once the cookies are completely cooled, add extra powdered sugar to the top.
  9. Enjoy!
