I started baking the first batch of Christmas cookies today to get into the Christmas feeling. They are called Snowball Cookies, and seriously when I was eating the dough, it had the chalky, soft, melty kind of feeling in my mouth! They just came out of the oven. Here is the recipe:
Crunchy pecans, vanilla and powdered sugar become delicious decorative Christmas treats for kids and adults to enjoy. Serve up these festive white Snowball Cookies for your next winter fete.
-1 cup butter or margarine
-1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-2 1/2 cups flour, sifted
