SNOWBALLS

I received the recipe for these Snowball Cookies last year (I think) at a Cookie Exchange with my quilting group friends.  I loved them but I didn't realize how easy they are to make!  I made a batch of these in less than an hour!  Here is the recipe:


SNOWBALL COOKIES

3 sticks of butter softened
3/4 c. powdered sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
3 c flour
1/2 c chopped nuts (I usually use pecans or walnuts)
1 bag holiday white chocolate chips (I like to use the mini ones but you can't always find them)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla.  Slowly add flour.  Add nuts and chips.  Roll into 1 1/4" balls.  (I used my small cookie scoop from Pampered Chef).  Place balls on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. (I didn't do this.  I just baked them straight on the cookie sheet).  Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden brown.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Place on rack to cool.  Makes about 4 1/2 dozen. 

Do you participate in a cookie exchange?  What is your favorite cookie?  This probably isn't mine but it sure is in the top 10.  How can you pick just one?
