Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies

Honey and Butter

I grew up in Southern California. I still whine every time the temperature drops below 70, and run under the blanket whenever there is a rainstorm. But don’t get me wrong, I’m a winter idealist. I love the thought of merry snowmen and hot chocolate.

In reality,  I’ll make snowball cookies instead.

Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 TB vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups flour
2 cups semisweet mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 375F. Beat butter, sugar, vanilla and salt in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradually beat in sugar, stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Shape level tablespoons of dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and sift powdered sugar over hot cookies on baking sheets. Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes, remove to wire racks to cool completely. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar, if desired. Store in airtight containers.
Makes 5 dozen.
