Snowball Cookies - Italian Wedding Cookies


For the Cookies:

  • 1.5 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 0.75 cup confectioners' sugar, plus extra for rolling the cookies
  • 0.75 teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 0.33 cup confectioners' sugar for rolling

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl beat the butter, sugar and salt until fluffy, about 5 minutes.

Add in the almond flour, vanilla and almond extracts. Blend in flour a little at a time and mix well.

Divide the dough in half and using a tablespoon, shape one half into balls and the other half into crescents.

Place one inch apart the prepared baking sheet and chill for 30 minutes. This step will prevent the cookies from spreading. Bake for 15-20 min. Do not brown. Cool for 5 minutes, then roll in the extra confectioners' sugar.
