Gluten Free Vegan Snowball Cookies. Also known as Russian tea cakes, these powdered sugar coated cookies are made with flavorful toasted walnuts. A buttery, simple holiday cookie!Growing up, there were certain cookies that my mom would only make at Christmastime. Raspberry-filled cheese tarts, gingerbread men, monkey cakes, almond crescents and thumbprint cookies {to name a few}. They were all my grandma’s recipes and all hold such precious memories for my family and I.

Now I have the privilege of baking in my own kitchen, making ALL the Christmas cookies my family. I usually make some of my childhood favorites, along with cookies that my kids have grown to love. Chocolate crinkle cookies, soft molasses cookiescut-out sugar cookies and raspberry thumbprint cookies. What are some of your favorites to make this time of year?

What’s not to love about these gluten free vegan snowball cookies?One cookie recipe that I hadn’t made for the blog {until now!} are these gluten free vegan snowball cookies. Also known as Russian tea cakes, these buttery holiday cookies are usually made with either ground toasted walnuts or pecans. They are seriously one of my favorite cookies EVER! There is a local gluten free bakery in town and everytime I go, I have to get one of their Russian tea cakes. Every single time.

What makes this holiday cookie so irroestiable? It might be that they are a slightly sweet shortbread type of cookie, coated in powdered sugar. Maybe it’s the abundance of toasted walnuts, which add so much flavorful. I can’t pinpoint one single thing, all I know is that I’m pretty obsessed with these little snowball cookies.

Gluten Free Vegan Snowball Cookies. These buttery, simple cookies are made with Bob’s Red Mill almond flour and toasted walnuts. Festive and flavorful!For this Christmas cookie recipe, I made the dough using a mixture of Bob’s Red Mill almond flour, as well as Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1-to-1 baking flour. Two of my favorite ingredients to work with when doing any of my gluten free baking. The texture and flavor you get from the finely ground almond flour, along with the toasted walnuts, makes for a pretty awesome Christmas cookie.

I don’t know about you, but all this cookie talk makes me want to get in the kitchen and do some holiday baking! I’m all about festive cookies for Christmas, but also cookies that don’t take too many ingredients or too much time to make. These gluten free vegan snowball cookies are simple to make and will be an irresistible addition to any holiday dessert table or cookie exchange!
