Chai Snowball Cookies

These are a variation of a Wedding cookie or an Almond or Pecan Snowball cookie.
They're made with Pistachio Flour and the dusting sugar has Ginger, Cinnamon, Cardamom and Allspice. They're a great cookie to serve during the Holidays.

Chai Snowballs

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
1 - Sheet Pan lined with Parchment Paper for baking and another one for cooling the baked cookies.

The Cookie Dough:

16 TBS Butter, softened.
1/2 C Confectioner's Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 C All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/4 C Pistachio Flour

Dusting Sugar:

1 C Confectioner's Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ginger
1 tsp Cardamom
1 tsp Allspice

In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment:
Beat well for 3 minutes.

In a small mixing bowl, sift together:
All Purpose Flour
Whisk well.

Slowly add the Pistachio Flour, alternating the All Purpose Flour to the Butter/Sugar mixture, on low.

Use a 1 1/2" cookie scoop to create a ball.
Smooth each one in the palm of your hand.
Place them 1" apart on the sheet pan.
Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
Bake for 20 minutes.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together all of the Dusting Ingredients.
Whisk well.

As soon as the cookies are baked, gently roll them in the Dusting Sugar and heavily coat them.
Transfer them to the clean Sheet Pan to cool for at least 15 minutes.
Dust them again in the mixture.
Transfer to a serving platter or a tightly sealed container and keep them at room temperature.

Peace in the Kitchen!
