Snowball Cookies

A childhood favourite! Sweet and crumbly Snowball cookies with walnuts.


  • 1 cup of soft butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of ground walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of milk, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Combine all of the ingredients (except powdered sugar and milk) together in a large bowl until blended.
  • If the mix seems a bit dry, add the tablespoon of milk.
  • Roll the mix into 1-inch balls and place them on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake the cookies for approx. 17-20 minutes.
  • Set the cookies on a baking rack to cool. Once lukewarm, roll them in the powdered sugar. Set aside.
  • Once the cookies have completely cooled, roll them in powdered sugar once more for an extra sweet flavour and 'snowy' appearance.
