A delicious chocolate version of everyone’s favorite Christmas time cookies, Mexican Wedding Cookies, Russian Tea Cakes… but this version is chocolaty and delicious.
I love “Wedding” Cookies. Maybe you call them a different name, maybe they have a different nut in them, but I’m sure you know the cookies I talking about. I call the white cookies “snowballs” I tend to make them in the winter, and they look like snowballs.
I love that they are a shortbread cookie, no eggs needed. They are delicious and melt in your mouth. Well these do, sometimes I’ve had “Wedding Cookies and they are D-R-Y, I have no idea how they are so dry but If you’ve bitten into a cookie that looks like these and they are dry, something is wrong. They should melt in your mouth, after all they are buttery and sugary in a GOOD way!
Snowballs or “Wedding Cookies“
I even made “Pumpkin Wedding Cookies” they didn’t need to be rolled in anything they were so pretty on their own.
- 1 ½ cups butter
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa, I use dutch process cocoa
- 3 cups flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon almond extract
- 1 cup almonds chopped
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- Beat butter, sugar cocoa. Mix in flour, salt, vanilla, and almonds
- Roll into one tablespoon size balls.
- Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes.
- Cool for 5 minutes then roll into powdered sugar mixed with cocoa.
- Roll cookies once again when cooled.
Do you like shortbread with raspberry jam?
I love making those too.
