How to Make Snowball cookies

  • In a bowl, add butter, icing sugar and vanilla essence - beat well until creamy.
  • Now add the chopped nuts and give a quick stir.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together maida, corn flour and salt.
  • Add this to the butter-sugar mixture. Mix well to form a dough - don't knead it, just bring them all together.
  • If it doesn't collect together, add a few drops of milk to bring it together to a soft buttery dough.
  • Wrap it and refrigerate for 30-40 mins or until it becomes firm.
  • Preheat oven to 177 degree C for 10 mins.
  • Line butter paper in the tray and keep it ready.
  • Pinch equal sized balls and roll them with your palms and place it in prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 1 inch apart.
  • Bake the cookies for 15 mins or until the base turns golden brown.
  • The top doesn't change color so be careful and check the bottom.
  • Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 3-5 minutes.
  • While the cookies are still warm, roll each cookie in icing sugar until fully coated.
  • Allow it to cool, and then store it in airtight container; it'll stay for about a week.
