Lemon Snowball Cookies

Hi Everyone,

Today I have for a simple cookie that is kind of winter with a mix of summer.  It is Lemon Snowball Cookies.  I got the idea of this recipe from King Arthur Flour.  I simplified their recipe to make it more adaptable to ingredients that you will have on hand.

Lemon Snowball Cookies

These cookies are amazing!  Buttery cookie with a lemon flavor that is sweetened with powdered sugar.  They will sure to be a hit.  But not only are they so delicious, they are a breeze to make too!  You have to love that!

Lemon Snowball Cookies

The recipe only contains a few ingredients, butter, flour, powdered sugar, salt and lemon extract.  If you do not have lemon extract, change it up with a different extract for a different flavored cookie.

This recipe makes 40 cute little snowball cookies.  I am so loving the powdered sugar on top.  They are puffy cookies that do not spread out that much you can easily fit 16 cookies to a baking sheet.

  4. Take a teaspoon size about of cookie batter and place 1" apart on baking sheet (I fit 16 cookies to each cookie sheet).
  5. Bake in oven for 10 - 12 minutes, until bottom starts to turn a very light golden color. Let cookies rest on baking sheet for 3 minutes.
  6. While cookies are warm, roll cookies in 1 cup of sifted powdered sugar. Let cookies cool completely.

Notes
Calories maybe less, I had left over powdered sugar when rolling.

Lemon Snowball Cookies

I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we do.  They bring the end of the Summer and a hello to the Fall & Winter season.  However, I am not ready for Summer to be over.  But I can’t wait for apple season!

Have a wonderful day!

Toodles,

  1. Thank you for sharing this cookies’ recipe with us. Already on my to do list 🙂
    Happy cooking !

  2. Can I use fresh lemon juice instead , although I realize that it might take too much juice to equal the amount of extract needed. Thanks for all the great recipes I have used through the years from you.
