Festive Butterball Cookies


Festive Butterball Cookies

These festive butterball cookies are the same classic butterball cookies made with walnuts that my mother and aunts always made for the Holidays. Also known as snowball cookies, these are always a favorite for the Holidays or served at weddings.

We make all of the Holiday cookies at our house, our 10-year-old grandson, Tyler made these cookies from start to finish.

The traditional butterball cookies would be made with walnuts. But, Tyler had some other festive options, and they turned out to be delicious.

Festive Butterball Ingredients:

1-1/2 cup butter softened
3/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white chocolate chips (Mini)
1/2 cup green cookie sprinkles
1/2 cup red cookie sprinkles

Instructions for Festive Butterball Cookies:

  1. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar. Tyler used our KitchenAid Stand Mixer.
  2. Add the vanilla and continue to mix well.
  3. Add in the salt, flour, white chips, and sprinkles.
  4. Continue to mix until dough becomes thick.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  6. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on cookie sheet about 2-inches apart.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they turn brown.
  9. Remove and place on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.
  10. Roll in powdered sugar and enjoy.
