Best Holiday Snowballs Recipe

If it’s the holiday season, you can bet I’m making some snowball cookies! I love the classic ones, but I can never resist putting my unique spin on them, and today, it’s gingerbread snowballs! 

They taste just like they sound like – a cross between the best gingerbread and the best snowball cookies all rolled up into adorable round cookies. 

These gingerbread snowball cookies take that classic simple recipe and turn them into a Christmas spice cookie. The scent of the spices alone is enough to get you in the Christmas spirit – In fact, they’re usually one of the first cookies I make. They are the best holiday mood-maker.

I also add some molasses, which contributes to the texture and flavor. Molasses is bitter, and it balances out the sweetness for the perfect cookie. There’s only a tablespoon, so it’s more in the background, but even that little bit adds a depth of flavor that is so good.

And if you need even more convincing – this is a no-chill cookie recipe! In 30 minutes, you can have a batch of gingerbread snowball cookies cooling on a wire rack. For the holidays, there’s nothing better than a batch of quick and easy cookies!
