These little snowball cookies or some people call them
Mexican Wedding Cookies;
But my Mother called them snowballs;
These little cookies are really a good tea cookie;
Serving a cup of tea with a snowball cookie is really quite satisfying.
These cookies have a small amount of powder sugar,
And it has ground nuts in them so they are a good source of protein
I like to use two different nuts;
My choice is grounded up walnuts and pecans!
These cookies are a dry sort of cookie that is why they go great
Snowball Cookie Recipe
1 cup of softened butter
1/4 cup powder sugar
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 Tbl. Milk or Cream
1 cup ground nuts
Walnuts or pecans or both of them!
2 cups flour
Cream butter and powder sugar
Add your milk or cream
Add vanilla and salt
Add ground nuts;
Then add your flour
Don't be afraid to add some more cream or flour;
To be able to roll them into little balls.
I make mine a bit bigger
(I like big cookies)
Place them on a cookie sheet
Bake at 325 for 15 to 17 minutes
You can tell they are done when they are lightly brown on the bottom.
Now, allow them to cool off slightly;
So now you roll these balls in powder sugar.
I like to keep all my homemade cookies in a tin, covered with wax paper and
Store them in the freezer; As this will keep them fresh
Then you just take out what you need for your tea time!
I have found that when I am in the baking mood
I will make enough cookies to last for quite a while...
And then when I have company or tea time I always have a fresh treat to serve!
Do you enjoy a nice cookie with your tea?
I have found that a shortbread cookie is also very good!
I do hope you are all doing very well! It seems that each season brings new things to do
And to overcome obstacles... But do not grow weary in doing good!
I am looking forward to doing a little craft for this next month, to keep busy and productive.
Always, Hugs Roxy
