These are really great, I've been making them for years, not only in the winter. They do tend to snow on your clothes when you bite them, be careful! Enjoy!

How to Make Almond Snowball Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pulse almonds and sugar in food processor until very finely ground. Add the butter and process until smooth. Scrape the dough off the inside of the bowl if needed. Add vanilla and almond extracts and pulse to combine. Add the flour and salt and pulse to make a soft dough.
  • 2Turn the dough out onto a large piece of wax paper and roll into a log about 15 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. Wrap in the wax paper and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  • 3Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • 5Put the confectioner's sugar in a pie plate. Briefly cool the cookies on a rack, then toss them in confectioner's sugar until evenly coated. Return to rack, cool to room temperature and then toss again in the confectioner's sugar.
