Here at the office we enjoyed a Christmas Cookie Exchange. Talk about some delicious cookies. Yum!
We decided to vote for the favorite cookie and the Office Christmas Cookie Contest WINNER was our hygienist Susan B. with the Candy Cane Snowballs.
We thought you all would like to have the winning cookie recipe.
Candy Cane Snowball Recipe
You will need:
2 cups of butter, softened
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
8oz white candy coating, coarsely chopped
1/3 to 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy
1. In a large bowl, cream butter and confectioner’s sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour and mix well. Stir in pecans. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until easy to handle.
2. Roll into 1in balls. Place 2in apart on un-greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove cookies to wire rack and let them cool.
3. In a microwave, melt candy coating at 70% power for 1 minute and stir. Microwave at additional 10 – 20 second intervals, stirring until smooth.
4. Dip the top of each cookie into the candy coating; allow excess to drip off. Then dip into crushed peppermint candy. Place on waxed paper and let them set.
Let us know what you think of this recipe.
