Snowball Cookies

This is a nice addition to any cookie tray.  It does require a little bit of thinking ahead, but I kind of like making the dough one day and baking the next.  I am actually making these in this year's cookie exchange; I have done so before and found they were a hit.

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup margarine
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Farenheit.
  2. Cream sugar, salt, and butter thoroughly.  Add vanilla.  Stir in flour.  Work nuts into dough.  CHILL WELL.
  3. Form 1 inch balls.  Bake for 10-12 minutes until set but not brown.  Roll immediately in powdered sugar.  Cool.  Roll in sugar again.  Store in an airtight containter.
Difficulty: Not too bad, though the forming into balls takes a little longer than the typical "drop by teaspoonful" type of cookie.
Time: 15 minutes prep.  Chilling time (overnight).  10-12 minute baking time per batch.
