Snowball Meltaways

I had already made the batter for the snowball meltaways and had to refrigerate it for an hour. While baking the Coconut Macraoons, I began to roll the dough for the Snowballs. These are a super simple, classic meltaway without using any nuts. Dry, crumbly, subtley sweet and super easy to make.

1-1/2 c. AP Flour
1/2 c. cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c. 10x sugar + more to dust
1 c. US butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

In medium bowl, combine flour, cornstarch and slat, then set aside.
In a larger bowl, combine butter and sugar for 3 minutes or so until light and fluffy.
Beat in vanilla, add in flour to incorporate, cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour.

Take dough out of fridge and roll into balls of aproximately 1 inch diameter and place on baking parchment about 1 inch apart. Bake at 350-degrees for 12-14 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then sit each cookie on a plate of 10x sugar to coat the bottoms, then place on parchment or rack to cool, and sift 10x sugar over the tops of them to mostly cover in 10x.
