Old Snowball Cookie Recipe

Marcia's Holiday Scrapbook:

Old Snowball Cookie Recipe

1 lb. Butter or oleo
1 Cup powdered sugar
4 C Swans Down Cake flour
1 Tsp salt
1 1/2 C of nuts (chopped - but not too, too fine)
2 Tsp vanilla

Mix together like pastry - in mixer - shape into balls (after dough has stood overnight, preferably) make the balls about the size of a small walnut. Place on ungreased cookie sheet - Bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes. Sift a 2 lb. box of confectionary sugar and roll cookies in sugar while warm - then once again after cooled. Will make approximately 12 dozen.

Be sure to check in tomorrow for a special Christmas eve post (with a recipe for Snow Candy).

As Christmas is quickly approaching, I'd like to take this time to thank all of you for the fun experience that your readership in 2010 has provided me. Here's to a safe and happy holiday, and a fantastic new year!
