Shortbread Snow Balls Recipe

These yummy little snow balls just melt in your mouth. They are really easy to prepare and bake so even little fingers can help you!


1 cup cold butter, cubed

2 cups flour

6 tbs icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla

Combine butter, flour, vanilla and sugar in a bowl. Mix together until all ingredients are combined evenly. Form into 2 inch balls and place onto a bake pan lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 300 degrees for 30 mins. Remove from oven and let balls cool slightly. Roll in icing sugar until completely covered. Pop in your mouth and enjoy!


  1. My butt is pretty cold here in Minnesota, but I don't think I want it cubed. ;-) Used to make these every Christmas, but added chopped pecans.

  2. Oops! That's funny, Pecans would taste really good. This was my moms recipe and she doesn't like nuts! :) Merry Christmas!!!
