Made with Nestle hot white chocolate mix, cream cheese, almond and spelt flour, these snowball cookies, also known as Russian tea cookies, will make a festive addition to any cookie platter or a great gift for anyone who loves cookies. Do not allow these cookies to get too brown. It's better to undercook them than to overcook them. If desired, re-roll cookies in powdered sugar for an extra sweet touch. Thank you, Kris, for sharing the recipe.

  1. In large mixing bowl, cream together butter, and cream cheese. Mix until smooth. Add white hot cocoa mix and stevia powder. Stir in vanilla flavoured stevia.
  2. In small bowl, combine refined spelt flour, almond flour and salt, gradually add to butter mixture. Mix until flour is fully combined. Cover with a plastic film and chill for at least one hour or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 175C/350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the cookie dough into 1-inch balls and place them on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cookies will not brown on top.
  4. Remove immediately to wire racks to cool for 5 minutes, then roll in powdered sugar. Cool completely on wire racks. If desired, reroll cookies in powdered sugar.

Making snowballs with white hot chocolate is such a great idea! I love that you made them with almond flour and spelt! They look so adorable and delicious and since you used stevia to sweetener them, that means I can have more right? :)

I've been trying very hard NOT to make cookies this year, but I think you just took me too far with these cookies. Cream cheese and white chocolate mix - Well, that just sounds like some really awesome ingredients for a cookie!!!
Hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season Angie!!!! You've really turned me on to some great foods this year. Can't wait to see what you come up with next year. See you in 2016!
