Walnut Snowball Cookies

This is my next walnut recipe; small kids are always attracted for shapes, frosting cake, ice creams etc. My kids are also in this list, during Christmas time they found a cookie like snowball in a paper and they started to ask me for that. Even I don’t know the name just a picture we saw. When I was browsing found this recipe, which looks like what they saw and its also named snowball.  Tried the same day and it clicked, the word snowball saved me. It tastes like butter biscuit with crunchy walnuts inside.


All purpose flour
½ cup
Walnuts finely chopped
¾ cup
2 Tbsp
2 oz
Powdered sugar
½ cup
a pinch
Cardamom powder
¼ tsp



  1. Preheat the oven to 300ºF and prepare the cookie sheet.
  2. Mix all the ingredients (except butter) in a large bowl. Now add butter little by little and mix well, finally it will be in a dough consistency with nuts.
  3. Divide that into small balls (I made 15 balls) and place that on cookie sheet at least an inch apart.
  4. Bake for 30 -35 minutes. When they are cool enough to touch, roll the cookies in powdered sugar. Set aside on a rack to cool completely. When cool, dust again with enough powdered sugar.
Note: You will be left with ¼ cup powdered sugar at last.
