Citrus Snowballs

Here is another sweet recipe for cold, winter evenings at home. These snowballs are surprisingly tasty, sweet, orange, crunchy cookies which will be a good match for hot tea/cocoa, blanket aaand book or dreams ;)
Also, if you're running out of time, they're very easy and quick to make which gives them another big +. 
Sprinkled with powdered sugar or glucose, look like a snowball on a table :) And children will love them! Just make sure they're not using them as snowballs ;)
There original recipe is here, though I've made quite a lot of changes, such as replacing butter with margarine which I tend to do very often recently.


Ingredients:

  • 250g of margarine
  • 100g of powdered sugar (+ more to sprinkle the cookies)
  • 1 teaspoon of orange extract
  • 100g of chopped walnuts
  • 100g of candied orange skin
  • 375g of flour

Preparation:
  1. Prepare a baking tray and put baking paper all over it.
  2. Start preheating the oven to 180C.
  3. Take a mixer and its bowl. Put margarine and powdered sugar inside and beat till bright and fluffy (around 10 minutes).
  4. Add orange extract, walnuts, candied orange skin and mix till well combined.
  5. Add flour and mix (or knead) again till well combined.
  6. Start making balls (around 2 teaspoons of dough for 1 ball) and place on previously prepared baking tray (they might be placed close to each other as they won't grow).
  7. If the oven is ready, bake for 10-15 minutes till golden brown.
  8. Cool down on a wire rack.
  9. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  10. Bon Appetit!
