Snowball cookies are soft and delicious pastries made with almond flour as a main ingredient. White and very tender, just like snowflakes, they will practically melt in your mouth. They are very easy to make: melt the butter, mix it with sugar and flours, then form some small balls and bake them. Once baked, sprinkle them with a little powdered sugar and enjoy them hot and fragrant at breakfast or snack time, together with a cup of tea or an herbal tea. So let’s find out how to make perfect snowball cookies by following our recipe step by step.
