Cookie Advent Calendar: Snow Cookies

If I bake Snow cookies, then I bake Glagoliki – and vice versa. Firstly, because I prefer cookies to any other type of dessert (not least because of their bite size).

Secondly, because two recipes require a total of two eggs. Who doesn’t enjoy being a thrifty housewife?

Without adding nuts or dried fruits, the taste of the cookies will be completely ordinary and the quality and taste characteristics of the base ingredients will be in the foreground. But this is exactly what is required sometimes: play with sugar, replacing cane sugar with coconut oil or salted butter with neutral butter.

Try it.

Snow Cookies

cookie advent calendar, day 5


100 g powder sugar
100 soften butter in room temperature
2 yolks

190 g flour
40 g nuts or dried fruits (optional for your choice)

40 g powder sugar for finish sprinkling


1. Preheat oven into 200 °C.

2. Grind the powdered sugar and butter well, then add the yolk and knead the dough using a mixer. Act quickly.

3. Sift the flour into the mixture and bring the mixture until smooth.

4. Add nuts and/or dried fruites if use them.

5. Roll the resulting dough into balls the size of a walnut. Place the balls on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.

6. Bake the cookies for 15 minutes, but starting from the 10th minute, start to control the process: you need to get a barely golden brown bottom, otherwise the cookies will be too dry.

7. Dip the still hot cookies into powdered sugar. This will give it a nice sweet crust.

Ready! Can be placed in a gift box.
