Here’s a tasty recipe that will delight you and your guests this holiday season. We can’t believe how tasty these cookies are! Traditionally Snowball cookies are made with ground nuts, however, we added our new Roasted Chestnut herbal tisane to the butter in this recipe to create an incredible taste sensation! Try the recipe below or there are a few variations to try with this recipe. You can add nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans…) either toasted or un-toasted and ground (1/2 – 1 cup) or add 1 cup of mini chocolate chips. These cookies are rolled in powdered sugar. We did roll them in powdered sugar, however, we also discovered that these cookies are scrumptious rolled in either a mixture of confectioner’s sugar & cinnamon or a mix of confectioner’s sugar & unsweetened cocoa. While both taste amazingly delicious, we think that the cocoa version pairs perfectly with the Roasted Chestnut and adds a depth of decadence to this recipe.
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Additional powdered sugar, for rolling (also can be mixed with cinnamon or mixed with unsweetened cocoa – your preference)
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 to 1 cup of ground nuts (walnuts, almonds, pecans)
Enjoy these tasty treats with your favorite S&V holiday tea. My favorite? The Gingerbread black tea paired perfectly with these heavenly cookies.
If you’re giving them away for holiday gifts definitely make extra. They’re hard to keep around!
