Grinch Snowball Cookies

Grinch Snowball Cookies


1 cup unsalted sweet cream butter

1/2 cup powdered sugar (plus 1 cup for rolling cookies)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/4 cups flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

3-5 drops green food coloring

1/2 cup pecans chopped

1/3 cup dried cranberries chopped

24 pieces red confetti heart sprinkles

1/4 cup white chocolate wafers melted


Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a standing mixer, cream softened butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Gradually mix in flour, salt, and food coloring until your batter is well-combined and a rich green color.

Stir in chopped pecans and cranberries until evenly distributed.

Form dough into 1 inch balls and place onto a prepared baking sheet (or two baking sheets depending on how large they are).

Bake cookies for 10 – 12 minutes. Remove from oven before they start to brown.

Allow cookies to cool enough to handle, then roll each in a small bowl of powdered sugar until fully coated.

Use melted white chocolate to secure a red heart sprinkle to the top of each cookie. 

Allow cookies to cool completely and chocolate to set before serving or storing.
