Christmas Snowball Cookies


  • 1 cup Earth Balance vegan butter
  • ½ cup powdered Sugar
  • ¾ tsp vanilla Extract
  • ¼ tsp almond Extract
  • cups flour
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped almonds
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • powdered sugar


  1. Heat oven to 400°F

  2. In large bowl mix Earth Balance Butter, ½ cup powdered sugar, vanilla and almond extract with wooden/rubber spatula.

  3. Stir in flour, nuts and salt until dough is formed.

  4. Shape dough into 1 inch balls, place on ungreased cookie sheet (dough will not expand--as you want cute little snowballs for this cookie!)

  5. Bake 10-12 minutes until firm. Be careful not to let the cookies brown on top, otherwise they will be too crispy!

  6. Roll warm cookies in a bowl of powdered sugar (I used two spoons to hold the cookie, while rolling in a bowl of powdered sugar) then cool on wire rack. Once cooled, roll in powdered sugar once more.

  7. Enjoy!
