12 Days of Cookies – Butter Ball Cookies

These cookies are very similar to the Chocolate Chip Snowballs I made on Day 6 of my 12 Days of Cookies, except they have no chocolate chips in them. I found this dough to be way too crumbly to form into balls. I had to add a little over a teaspoon of water to the dough to be able to work with it. These are one of my stepmom’s favorite holiday cookies, so I decided to add it to the 12 Days of Cookies. Again, I made a 1/2 batch and I got 12 cookies.

I took these to work and brought them to my last day of Spanish class (yes, I’m trying to learn Spanish. If anyone knows Spanish and wants to help me practice, let me know!) Our professor told us to bring treats if we wanted. My class only has 5 people in it, so this half batch provided the perfect number of cookies.

Butter Ball Cookies – from Cooks.com – makes 2 dozen1 1/2 c. nuts – I used walnuts
1 c. flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 c. soft butter
1/4 tsp. salt
Powdered sugar

Chop nuts very fine. Put into mixing bowl.

Add all remaining ingredients (I creamed the butter and sugar, then added the rest of the ingredients and stirred by hand). Chill dough 1/2 hour.

Form dough 1 inch into balls. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes or until set (not brown).

Cool and roll in powdered sugar. Makes 2 dozen cookies.

    I’ve never used my bundt pan and I think I need to change that! 🙂

      That definitely needs to change. I love a good bundt. They’re less fussy than a regular cake.
