These Butter Snowballs are soft, melt in your mouth with a dusting of powdered sugar. It’s a family favorite holiday dessert recipe!


1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar, plus more for rolling

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or almond extract)

2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans


Using an electric mixer, beat together butter and powdered sugar until creamy.

Add the salt and vanilla (or almond) extract, and beat until incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Add the flour and nuts and beat on low speed until combined.

Chill dough in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, until easy to handle.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden on the bottom.

Let cool for 5 minutes, then roll warm cookies in powdered sugar. Let cookies cool completely and then roll in powdered sugar a second time.
