Eggless Snowball Cookies

Today is a day for celebration.My dear friend Srivalli who writes at Cooking 4 All Seasons and Spice Your Life and the master mind behind this Blogging Marathon, is celebrating her birthday today.

Here is a small virtual treat from my kitchen. I am aware that birthdays mean cakes but I baked these super yummy cookies for her that I had bookmarked from Nags Blog

I have never seen these cookies but Nags had mentioned that these were her favorite and her clicks were so tempting.Plus the fact that they are egg-less made me want to try them.

I used:
Recipe source - Edible Garden

All purpose flour - 1 cup
Walnuts-3/4 cup, finely chopped
Butter- 1/2 cup,at room temperature
Sugar- 4 tablespoons
Salt- 2 pinches
Icing sugar - for coating / dusting

1.. Preheat  the oven to 160 degree C

2.Take the flour, sugar, chopped nuts, and salt in a bowl.Mix well.

3.Add the butter.

4.Knead lightly till the dough comes together and there is no sign of the flour.

5.Pinch out small balls from the dough and place them on a greased tray 2" apart.

6.Bake for 25 minutes. Nags says it must not be baked for more than 35 minutes. So keep checking in between if you feel the cookies are not done and need to be baked for a longer time.

7. While the cookies are still warm, roll them in icing sugar so that they are well coated .Be liberal as the cookies are not very sweet on their own.Store the cookies in an airtight container once completely cooled.

or enjoy these super tasty cookies as soon as they are ready :)

Srivalli,Wishing you a very Happy Birthday and this was baked specially for you. Hope you like them :)

I am sure she will be happy if I send this across to her event- Kids Delight, hosted this month by Priya with the theme Eggless and Vegan Bakes

Bon Appetit...
