My Snowball Cookies are soft, chewy, tender cake mix cookies that are coated in powdered sugar to look like “snowballs.” Perfect for when you need a simplified or nut-free version of the classic cookie.
I’m sure you have all seen the traditional Snowball Cookies, but since the recipes all call for nuts, they are a no-go for us. But I so love them and think they are perfect for Christmas time. They are so pretty and white and I love how they look mixed in with bountiful tin of Christmas cookies. Try these Snowball Cookies with no nuts and you’ll love them.
While planning our “Frozen” Inspired Snow Party, I knew snowball cookies would be the perfect treat to add to our dessert table. My boy has a nut allergy, so I had to get creative and come up with a recipe that would be just as yummy and pretty. I think I won that challenge!
These cookies are incredibly easy to make, using just a few ingredients:
The first four ingredients make up the actual cookie. See? No nuts! Before you yell at me, I know these are a flat cookie, while traditional snowballs cookies are more round. But we’re going for “inspired” here, and remember my boy that’s allergic to nuts? He LOVES these!
They go perfectly with a tall glass of cold milk, and I personally think Santa would love them too! I mean, aren’t they pretty?? Almost too pretty to eat…but we eventually succumbed to the pressure! This is a gooey, tender cookie, and it just melts in your mouth! The adults at our party enjoyed them just as much as the kids did!
Medium Cookie Scoop – This scoop comes in handy when baking cookies to keep them uniform in size and make them easy to roll. It holds 2 tablespoons of dough.
Sheet Pan with Sides: Also known as a Jelly Roll Pan, this is a staple in my kitchen and I use it nearly every day. The sides keep food from sliding off onto the bottom of your oven.
Parchment paper – I prefer parchment to foil; it’s just easier to work with and is just as nonstick. Plus it just looks prettier!
