Christmas Cookies: Snowballs

snowball cookies

Growing up we lived next-door to the best baker in the whole neighborhood. A few days before Christmas she would come over with a giant, delicious dish filled with the best cookies I’ve ever tasted. Snowball cookies were some of my favorite on her plate, but funny enough I had never tried to recreate the recipe! This year I want to make my own plate of cookies and figured it was worth a shot. Luckily enough, I finally figured out the perfect recipe and I thought you guys might like it as well!
