Holiday Baking

This is the first year I made this cookie and my family loved them! They are a spin on the classic Russian tea cake. I got the recipe off the bag of the Nestle swirled holiday morsels. I'm sure these are going to be a new family favorite in our home.

Holiday Snowball Cookies

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, softened

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. salt

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 2/3 cups white chocolate chips (or whatever your favorite is)

Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 F. Beat the butter, sugar, vanilla extract and salt in large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in morsels and nuts. Shape level tablespoons of dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned. Remove form oven. Sift powdered sugar over hot cookies on baking sheets. Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar, if desired.
