Melt in your mouth Cheddar Cheese Snowball Cookies are a fun twist to a traditional favorite. They do not taste cheesy as how they are named, but the cheddar cheese adds texture, richness, and creaminess to the classic snowball cookies.
Snowball cookies are one of those classics that many consider to be a must-bake during the holidays. Cheese is not typically included in snowball cookies. But when I was looking for Indonesian snowball cookie recipes online, these Cheddar Cheese Snowball Cookies came out a lot. I decided to try it out and let me tell you that it actually works. If you have never added cheese to your cookies before, maybe now it is time to start.
They do not taste cheesy although cheddar cheese is added to the dough. However, they wound up so much richer, more tender, and creamier with the perfect melt-in-your-mouth bite! These cookies just became a new favorite of mine, and I hope you will enjoy them, too!
How to Make Them Cheesy?
Although cheddar cheese is added to the dough, you will not be able to taste the cheese inside. The amount of cheese is just enough to make the cookies a bit richer and creamier. If you want them to taste cheesy, just double the amount of cheese.
Keep in mind that if you double the cheddar cheese, you will also alter the texture of the cookies. They will be much softer and creamier. Instead of adding more cheddar cheese, I really recommend adding hard and saltier cheese, such as parmesan cheese, edam cheese, and gouda cheese to create a strong cheese flavor without making the cookies too soft.
