Melts in your mouth! These are a refreshing change from those too sweet Christmas Cookies.
3 Tips for the BEST Snowball Cookies
- Use proper room temperature butter.
- Make sure you use confectioners’ sugar in the cookie dough. Granulated sugar causes the cookies to over-spread and they’ll lose their “snowball” shape.
- Coat the cookies with confectioners’ sugar TWICE since the first layer slightly melts.
Oh and one more thing: Sprinkles are completely optional, but add a fun and festive look.
