Snowball Cookies: Yummy & Delicious Treat!


Snowball Cookies

For those of you who must have dairy free, we made our Snowball Cookies with dairy free ‘butter’ and they were great.

I think they’d be fabulous with margarine, but we got an evil lactose allergy so we make due.  😀  I’d love to hear any additions/changes you make!  These are fabulous with coffee or hot chocolate!


1 lb margarine

1/2 c sugar

4 tsp vanilla extract

3 1/2 c flour

1/2 c chopped nuts

3/4 c confectioners sugar

  1. Cream Margarine and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Add vanilla; stir in flour, blending well.
  3. Stir in nuts, mix well.
  4. Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into balls.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
  6. Let cool.
  7. Roll in confectioners sugar and enjoy!

For my dairy free folks, try using butter extract. With a lactose allergy, we get the flavor with no consequences to the allergy.  It’s a great win! You’ll find it in the same area as the Vanilla and such!

      They absolutely are! I make them during the winter, but I’ve been thinking I may need snowballs to cool down this summer when I’m hiding in the air conditioning! haha

      Thank you! For the compliment and pinning! I think they’d be amazing with real butter! Unfortunately hubs and that lactose allergy. Sometimes I feel like I’m missing out on so much goodness. haha. But, eh, I love that man!
