How To Make Peppermint Snowball Cookies:
To begin making these peppermint cookies, grab a large bowl and cream together the butter and powdered sugar with a hand mixer.
Mix it all together until the dough is light and fluffy. This will take about 5 minutes or so.
Then, add in the vanilla extract and mix it into the dough.
Now, slowly add in the flour to the dough as well.
Once that is all done, fold in the chopped pecans.
Then, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge to chill for 2-3 hour or until the dough is firm though to shape.
After the dough is done chilling, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Now, shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place the balls on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Once you are done rolling the dough, place the cookie sheet in the oven for 13-15 minutes.
When the timer is done, remove the cookies and immediately place them on a cooling rack to let the cookies cool completely.
Melt the white chocolate in 30 second intervals until it is completely smooth, and dip the cooled cookies in the white chocolate.
Then, just sprinkle them with the crushed peppermint candies and let the white chocolate set up.
After that, the cookies are done and ready to be enjoyed!
