Christmas Cookie Countdown- 7 days 'til Christmas

It was bound to happen at some point during this countdown.
And today was the day.

Our first baking hiccup.

Say hello to our super undercooked snowball cookies:

Sad. Sad. Sad.

I thought they were done so we went ahead and dusted them with icing sugar. Yup, I should have checked them first. Could have popped 'em back in for a few minutes.
Lesson learned.
On the bright side, the kids still love them. In fact I can't keep their little paws off of them!
Here's the recipe..... maybe you'll have better luck :)

Snowballs Cookies
(from Your Homebased Mom)

2 sticks butter, softened (1 cup)

3/4 cup sugar

2 cups flour

1 cup finely chopped walnuts (optional)

8 oz. chocolate kisses

powdered sugar for dusting

Cream butter and sugar well until smooth. Add flour and then walnuts. Gather dough into disk-shape and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate at least 1/2 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove foil from kisses and insert one inside a ball of dough 1 inch in diameter. Make sure each kiss is completely covered by dough. Bake on ungreased baking sheet for 12 minutes, until just cooked through. Roll in powdered sugar after cooled.
