Ingredients You Need

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line large baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper or silicone baking mat.


In a large bowl, add softened butter and icing sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and combined. Add vanilla extract and beat just until incorporated.


Add almond flour; mix with spatula and finish mixing by hand, until cohesive dough forms. You might need to add 1 tbsp warm water or milk to help the dough bind.


Add walnuts and stir until combined.


Scoop 1 tbsp of dough, roll into a ball, place on previously prepared baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch in between (cookies do not spread). Repeat with remaining dough.


Bake for 12 minutes (before cookies start browning), remove from the oven and cool cookies only for 5 minutes.


In a small bowl, add 2 tbsp icing sugar or erythritol and while snowball cookies are still warm, roll each one in an icing sugar.


As they are rolled, place on the cooling rack to cool off more.


In a cookie jar for up to 5 days. Add a slice of bread to help absorb moisture from the air. If you find your cookies start to dry out, place them in an airtight container.
