Christmas Snowball Cookies

Finally winter is here after a loooooog warm autumn . I hope we'll have snow for X'mas  !  Anyway while dreaming of snow , I've made this yummy & easy Snowball Cookies which I LOVE eating . Also know as Russian Tea Cake or Mexican Wedding Cookies .  You  only need 5 ingredinets & no less than 30 mins to make them  . I love the buttery ,  rich nutty flavour & ever so light  that it just melts in your mouth ....  YUM ! They also look adorable like snowball & VERY adictive too !  LOL

Christmas Snowball Cookies 
Recipe from Fifteen Spatulas

Ingredients :
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup finely chopped almonds (I've used half almonds & half walnuts)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter - softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp rum (optional)

For coating:
1 cup of confectioner sugar / icing sugar


1) Preheat oven to 160°C .

2) Combine flour , almonds & sugar together . Add in butter , vanilla extract , ( rum) & mix well with a hand mixer till cookie dough comes together .

3) Roll into 2 to 2.5 cm balls & place on  baking sheet . Bake for 25 mins till the center fully cooked . Set aside for 5 mins & roll in icing sugar till it resembles  snowball .
