Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies

Come winter time comes an immense desire for me to bake.  And with having an unpredicatble schedule thanks to the lil' man, I wanted to try something easy.

Enter the chocolate chip snowball cookie.

The recipe comes from the Crazy For Crust blog.

The Goods:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Additional powdered sugar, for rolling

The How To:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add flour and salt and mix until the dough comes together. Stir in the chocolate chips. If dough is too soft, chill it until you can work it easily with your hands.
  3. Scoop 1 tablespoon balls of dough and place on prepared cookie sheet.
  4. Bake cookies for 7-10 minutes until bottoms are just slightly brown. Remove from oven and cool for just a minute, until you can handle them. Fill a small bowl with powdered sugar and roll each cookie in the sugar until coated. Place on a rack to cool.  (Once cookies are cooled, you may want to re-roll them in more powdered sugar.)

The Result:

Very tasty. Super easy. And the chocolate chips could be taken out and replaced with other things if one desires (maybe caramel chips...)
