Snowball Cookies

By: Sarmi
Region: Indian
Dish:Vegetarian - Breakfast/Tiffins/Snacks


Maida (All Purpose Flour) - 1 and 1/2 cups (210 gms)
Corn flour - 1/2 cup (65 gms)
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Powdered or icing sugar -1/4 cup (40 gms)
Unsalted Butter - 1 cup (200 gms)
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Chopped nuts - 2 to 3 tbsp (I used walnuts & cashewnuts)
For the topping:

Powdered or icing sugar - 1/2 cup (80 gms) (You may not end up using it fully)


1.In a bowl add butter, icing sugar and vanilla essence - beat well until creamy. Now add the chopped nuts and give a quick stir.
2.In a separate bowl first whisk together maida, cornflour and salt.Then add maida, cornflour mixture to butter sugar mixture. Mix well to form a dough - Dont knead it, just bring them all together that is just enough. If its doesn't collect together add few drops of milk to bring it together to a soft buttery dough. Wrap it and refrigerate for 30-40mins or until it becomes firm.
3.Preheat oven to 177 deg C for 10mins. 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 about 1 inch apart. Bake the cookies for 15mins(In my oven it took 20mins) or until the base turns golden brown. The top doesnt change color so be careful in checking the bottom.
4.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 down then store it in airtight container, it stays well for about a week.
