Snowball Cookies!

Here are some fun winter cookies I think you will like! I call them snowball cookies because they are dipped in white chocolate, and then dipped in edible crystal flakes that look like glistening snow. They also have a surprise ingredient in the center~a chocolate kiss! So you can throw them at someone you love!

1 cup Butter
1 cup Confectioners Sugar
1 cup Granulated Sugar
2 large Eggs
1 teaspoon Vegetable Oil
2 teaspoons Vanilla
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
5 1/4 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar 
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Salt
White Chocolate or White Candy Melts
or White Chocolate Chips
Sparkly Clear Sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Beat your butter on medium until it is fluffy.
Add both sugars, and mix well.
Add your eggs, oil, vanilla and lemon juice.
Beat until blended.
In a separate bowl, mix together your flour, cream of tartar,
baking soda and salt.
Add the flour mix to your egg mix and beat until blended.
Using a small scoop, Scoop out the cookie mix.
Place it on your parchment paper.
Unwrap your chocolate kisses and......
place the chocolate kiss upside down into your dough.
Mold the dough around your chocolate 
and form into a ball.
Place on baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes.
Don't worry about browning the cookies.
They will get a little brown on the bottom only.
Let your cookies cool completely.
(They taste really good right now with the melty kiss inside!)
While your cookies are cooling, chop your white chocolate,
and melt it in a double boiler or microwave if you prefer.
Once the chocolate is melted, place the top of 
the cookie in the chocolate to coat the top.
Then dip the top of the chocolate covered cookie 
into the sparkly sprinkles.
Set them back on your cooling rack to dry. 
They look so pretty, .....
and here is your surprise inside!

I hope you enjoy these snowball cookies. This recipe is originally from
an adaption of the thumbprint cookies that I love to make from
a Southern Living recipe. I love when recipes are so good they
can be used as several different items, don't you?!

Thanks for stopping by!
