Chocolate Almond Snowball Cookies

Standard

I know its a little early for Christmas cookies, however the men are gone, so the girls are gonna bake.  Since my little girl is only six, I like to find easy recipes.  Here is one that I found over at Southern Fairytale .  This would be perfect for a cookie exchange party.

What you will need:

1 1/2 Cups Butter or Margarine (3 sticks)

2/3 Cup Powdered Sugar

1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

1 Tsp. Almond Extract

4 Cups Flour

2 tbsp. Ice Water

1 1/2 cup Chocolate Covered Almonds

Turn oven to 300 degrees. Cream the butter.  Beat in the powdered sugar, vanilla, and almond extract.  Work in the flour and ice water.  Shape and roll into balls.  Push 1-2 almonds into each ball, making sure the chocolate is completely covered.  Bake 30 – 35 minutes  After baking, roll in sifted powered sugar while hot.  Cool and roll again in the powdered sugar.
