I love snowball cookies and this vegan version is super easy to make and delicious! These cookies have a perfect, soft, crunchy texture with just the right amount of pecans and orange flavor. These can easily be made gluten-free by substituting the flour for your gluten-free flour of choice too. =)

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Combine butter and powdered sugar in bowl. Beat at low-speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until well mixed. Add orange essential oil and stir well. Start with 3 drops and add more to taste.
