Believe me, a virtual recipe swap is way easier than the traditional cookie swap!
My very favorite Christmas Cookie has to be my own Mom’s Snowball recipe. I made these last night as we were awaiting the first big snowfall of the season. It just seemed like the right thing to do!
They’re easy, yummy, and they disappear quickly!
Mema’s Snowball Cookies
1 cup margarine
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup nuts (walnuts or pecans, chopped or ground)
1/4 teaspoon salt (I usually leave this out)
(Extra confectioner’s sugar for coating cookies)
Cream together margarine, sugar, vanilla. Mix in flour and nuts. Hand form into balls and bake in 350 degree F oven for 8-10 minutes. As soon as they come out of the oven, roll in a bowl of confectioner’s sugar to coat.
Yum, yum! Enjoy warm or cold (if they last that long!)
