My grandma calls these “Italian Wedding Cookies,” but I know the recipe as “snowballs,” too. Seeing that it’s the holiday season, I’m going with Snowballs. These are  simple cookies to make, and their yummy! EnjoyIMG_8248

1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
more powdered sugar (about a cup)

With an electric mixer, combine the butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and vanilla.  Then mix in the flour, salt and walnuts.  Mix on a high speed until the solid dough forms–it will take longer than you think, just keep mixing.  Roll the dough into neat little balls and bake them on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes until they just begin to brown.

While the cookies are still hot, roll them in a bowl of powdered sugar and set them out to cool.  After they are cooled down, roll them in powdered sugar once more.
