Christmas Snowball Cookies


  • 150g Plain flour
  • 120g Butter, softened
  • 50g Icing sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 50g Ground almonds

  • Wrap dough with cling film and refrigerate for about 20 minutes.
  • Roll chilled dough into a long cylinder about 3 cm in diameter. Slice roll and weigh the pieces to check they are uniform in size, about 8g each.
  • Shape dough pieces into balls and place in alternating rows on prepared baking tray to ensure good distribution of oven heat for even baking.
  • Bake cookies for 20 minutes, then remove from heat and leave to cool on a wire rack.
  • Once cooled, dust cookies with icing sugar and store in an airtight container to keep them crisp.
