Lemon snowball cookies are always a favorite cookie recipe, but when it comes time to make Christmas cookies, this is often one of the most requested Christmas cookie recipes. These cookies are light and crispy with a hint of lemon and yummy coconut.



1 c unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 tsp coconut extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-1/4 c flour
1-1/2 Tbsp lemon rind, grated
1/2 tsp salt
1 c sweetened flaked coconut
1-1/2 c powdered sugar (to roll the cookies in)



  1. Beat the butter in a large bowl until creamy.
  2. Add 1/2 c powdered sugar and the coconut and vanilla extracts; beat until well combined.
  3. Add the flour, grated lemon rind and salt; combine thoroughly.
  4. Stir in the sweetened flaked coconut.
  5. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven 350° F.

  1. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place on baking sheet, spacing about 1″ apart.
  2. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes; cookies should be light brown on the bottom, but not browned on top. Cool cookies on wire rack for a few minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, add the remaining 1-1/2 c powdered sugar. While the cookies are still warm, gently roll in the powdered sugar until well coated. Place back on cooling rack to cool completely. Just before serving, roll cookies in powdered sugar a second time.


Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
