I love regular snowball cookies, but add crushed peppermint candies and you have something even more special for holiday entertaining or cookie exchanges!

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Yields: 24 snowball cookies

Ingredients

cookies

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

2/3 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies (about 20)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 tsp Kosher salt

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

topping

1/4 cup crushed peppermint candies (about 10)

3/4 cup powdered sugar

Directions

1Preheat oven to 350˚ Fahrenheit. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

2In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter medium speed for 30 seconds.

3Add the powdered sugar, crushed peppermint candies, the vanilla, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl as needed. Beat in the flour in two additions, mixing in any additional flour with a spatula.

4Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before baking. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until cookies are set and bottoms are light golden.

5Cool on the cookie sheets for a few minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

6In a bowl combine the 1/4 cup peppermint candies and 3/4 cup powdered sugar.

7Roll the cookies in the powdered sugar mixture so they are well covered.
