My Favorite Cookie on the 3rd Day of Advent…

I thought today I would share with you my FAVORITE cookie!  I use the recipe on the back of these Nestle morsels:


Although I don’t think Nestle is making this chip any more (I have some left from stocking up last year) they are exactly the same as their premium white chips.  The only difference is the coloring.

Swirled Holiday Snowball Cookies

1 1/2 c butter, softened

3/4 c powdered sugar

1 tbsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. salt

3 c flour

1 2/3 c (1 package) Nestle swirled premium white chips

1/2 c finely chopped nuts

powdered sugar

mix butter, sugar, vanilla and salt in mixer until creamy.  Gradually beat in flour.  Stir in morsels and nuts.  Shape level tablespoons of dough into 1 1/4 inch balls.  Bake at 375 degrees on ungreased cookie sheets 10 – 12 minutes until set and lightly browned.  Sprinkle powdered sugar on hot cookies, cool on cookie sheet for about 10 minutes.

Just a tip, don’t let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet or they will stick.  Put them on a cooling rack.  You can add more powdered sugar (I always do) after they have cooled a bit.  These are absolutely wonderful cookies…give them a try!

Well, those cookies sound very yummy. I have never seen those chips before but they sure do look fun.
