 Snowball Cookies (Jillian's Favorite)

1 cup Butter

3/4 cup Confectioners Sugar (powdered sugar)

2 1/2 cups Flour

1 tsp Vanilla

1 Cup of Pecan or Walnuts -we omit these and use Mini Chocolate Chips instead

Bowl of Confectioners Sugar for Rolling

Cream together butter and sugar. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well to form dough.Best to use your hands.Form into small balls.Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Check for light brown color after 10 minutes. Don't overcook. Once completely cooled roll in the confectioners sugar. Makes 3 dozen. Recipe add easily be doubled or tripled.

Thanks for the snowball cookie recipe-I'm going to try it for a holiday party we're going to. I'm not a big baker, & these seems easy :)

Can't get any easier than this


These are super easy. My kids can pretty much make them on their own. Preheat your oven to 225 degrees. Now, spread the round pretzels on a cookie sheet so that they lie flat. Fill it up. These treats are addictive and you’re going to wish you made more.

Unwrap about a million kisses, one for each pretzel and one for each kid’s mouth every few minutes. Place one kiss in each pretzel.

Now, place the cookie sheet into your oven. Allow the kisses to melt. Don’t leave the room. This really takes only 3 or 4 minutes. Maybe less, depending on your oven. Take them out as soon as the kisses are melted, but still hold their shape. If you leave them in too long, they will dry out and become hard.

Now, press one M&M into each kiss. Push them around a little so that chocolate touches all of the edges of the pretzels.

Allow the chocolate to set up and enjoy. They will set up fine at room temperature, but we usually end up sticking them in the fridge to encourage the process. We’re impatient. Enjoy. Share them, you will be loved by all.

Merry Christmas to you all from all of us on Hilltop.

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and brandy. Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the white chocolate chips and cranberries. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. For best results, take them out while they are still doughy. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
