Snowball Cookies (Delicious sugar coated cookies for Merry Christmas !!! Easy recipe !!)
Makes: 24 cookies
Please use same measuring cup to measure flour, sugar, unsalted butter, cashew nuts and milk.
1 cup / 200 ml all purpose flour (maida) Indian standard measuring cup of 200 ml / 8 oz capacity
¾ cup chopped cashew nuts
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup unsalted butter (soft butter @ room temperature)
¼ cup milk / 5 - 6 tablespoon lightly warm milk
1 teaspoon butter (to grease baking tray)
1/2 cup / 75 g powdered sugar (to coat cookies)
In a wide bowl, mix all purpose flour with chopped cashew nuts, sugar and unsalted soft butter. Mix well until all the ingredients well combined.
Sprinkle 3 - 6 tablespoon milk (first start with 3 tablespoon and later adjust with remaining milk to make a soft dough) and make a soft dough like chapatti dough.
Preheat oven (OTG) at 325 *F or 170 *C (very moderate). Grease a baking dish / tray with 1 teaspoon butter and keep aside.
Knead the dough again and make 24 small balls. Make perfect balls and arrange on a greased baking tray.
Leave enough space (1 - inch) between each ball and bake for 25 - 30minutes in 2 batches (bake 12 cookies at a time – depending upon the size of the baking tray) or until they turn light golden in color.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle powdered sugar and coat well nicely when the cookies are hot. Then it will evenly coat well. Use a tablespoon to coat powdered sugar.
Keep aside to cool for 20 minutes and store in an airtight container.
