SNOWBALL COOKIES!!! DON’T LOSE THIS AND TRY IT WHY YOUR FRIENDS 😋❄️
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
½ cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 ¼ cup flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup Christmas M&Ms
2 cups powdered sugar, for coating
Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the butter, ½ cup powdered sugar, and almond extract until light and fluffy.
In a medium bowl, whisk to combine the flour and salt. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Continue mixing until a dough forms. Fold in M&M’s.
Scoop out about 1.5 Tbsp of the dough, roll into a ball, and place on a cookie sheet. Repeat to form all cookies.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, until bottoms are light brown. Allow cookies to cool for about 5 minutes, or until they can be handled.
Add 2 cups of powdered sugar to a shallow bowl and roll each cookie in it. Place rolled cookies on a cooling rack. Once cookies are fully cooled, roll in powdered sugar once more before serving.
