How to make Cranberry Hazelnut Snowball Cookies?
Cranberry Hazelnut Snowball Cookies
- 1 cup butter softened
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
- POWDERED SUGAR FOR ROLLING THE COOKIES
Preheat oven to 325 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment cream butter for 2 minutes. Add sugar and mix until combined.
In a separate bowl sift flour and salt. Gradually add flour and salt to the butter mixture. Mix until incorporated. Add hazelnuts and cranberries and mix so they are evenly distributed.
Roll 1 tbsp balls and line them on the baking sheet, leaving 2 inches in between. If you prefer not to bake all the cookies at once, transfer to a Hefty bag and freeze for later.
Bake cookies for 12-15 minutes, until edges are lightly browned.
Let them cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then roll in powdered sugar and transfer to a cooling rack to cool down completely
Roll cookies in powdered sugar again before serving.
