Butterball Cookies

In Dianes Kitchen


This Butterball Cookie recipe has been passed down in my family for three generations. There are no eggs in these cookies and the nuts and powdered sugar (added after baking) are optional. I have been making these Butterball Cookies with my Christmas Cookies for decades now.

These cookies are about as easy as it gets. I like to freeze them and take out what I need just before serving. I also like this recipe because it doesn’t make a huge amount of cookies.




In a medium bowl, cream the

butter with a large spoon.


Add the rest of the ingredients to

the butter except the powdered

sugar. Stir with a wooden spoon.


Once it starts to form a ball, use

your hands to bring it all together.

The warmth of your hands will

make the perfect dough for rolling.


Roll dough into 1” balls and place

them on an ungreased cookie…
