It has been a while since I have posted, but since I finished working, all I have been doing is catching up on baking!
My Pinterest page is overflowing with ideas, and I still have PLENTY more to keep me busy. But I don’t mind. Busy is good for me!
I recently purchased whole wheat pastry flour but didn’t know how I would use it. Of course, I got on Facebook and decided to try the snowball recipe from here!
If you love almonds and powdered sugar, this recipe is for you! Plus, it’s super easy. It’s a win-win!
Almond Snowball Cookies (makes 20-24 cookies)
- 1 1/4 cups whole-wheat-pastry flour
- 1/4 cup finely-chopped almonds ( I left them chopped a big bigger to give the cookies more texture)
- 5 Tbsp butter-type spread ( I used smart balance)
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- optional: more powdered sugar, for rolling
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
In a separate bowl, stir together the whole wheat pastry flour and almonds.
Then mix all ingredients together to form the dough.
I used a tablespoon measure to shape the dough into balls, but I only used about 3/4 of the tablespoon to make the cookies.
Place the dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until lightly browned.
After they come out of the oven, roll the warm balls in powdered sugar if desired.
These little balls of goodness clock in at 56 calories per cookie! (This is based upon my recipe for 23 cookies).
