Snowballs

It’s snowing!  Okay, maybe it’s not literally snowing in the hot Christmas South, but we can make it snow with these buttery melt-in-your mouth winter white Snowballs!  

These balls of white powder are shortbread-like cookies that make Christmas time, in my house, extra special.  You need a little sparkle of glittering snow on your Christmas table, making eyes wide with awe and excitement!

Snowballs

I’m warning you, they are messy, but so worth it!  If you make them small enough you can just pop them in your mouth without getting the powdered sugar everywhere, but that’s just hopeful thinking.  These cookies are made to make a little snow dusting.  You can keep popping them in your mouth,though, enjoying every bite of their buttery sweet texture that will just melt in your mouth.  If you don’t usually moan with an excited yumminess moan when you take a bite of something, you will when you take your first bite of these Snowballs.  I should call these Excited Moaning Snowballs because every time I make them, it seems like everyone just moans and does that ‘oh this is so good’ eye roll, especially my family members.  It’s kind of quite humorous:)
Come on over and get ready for a snowball fight as we mix and roll and get powdery white with this Christmas favorite and let Summie’s Yummies Sweet (and Snowy) Deliveries bring merriment and joy to your Christmas celebrations!:)  Merry Christmas!!!
