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!!!

Abundantly Free

If anything ‘I am a child of God.’  That is a new song we have been singing, or belting out, at church.  It’s so freeing and refreshing and mind renewing to just be reminded that I, and you, are children of the King most high (so we are Royal!) and that we have a good good father who calls us beloved, beautiful, abundantly free!

For some, the word father can mean something bad and just rub you the wrong way.  You are not alone, but know this- the word Father is a good word and you ‘are loved by Him, that’s who you are, that’s who you are!’

Wes’s Ginger Creams

Wes’s Ginger Creams…sweet and comforting to the soul and healing to the bones.  That’s what these soft gingery cookies remind me of – they have that homey warmth when you just need a taste of home, and in my case, a taste of my brother, Wes.

Blossoming with Peanut Butter

Have I mentioned to you yet just how much I love cookies?  Well, in case you missed it, I do love cookies!

Blossoming Peanut Butter Vegan Cookies

Blossoming Peanut Butter Vegan Cookies

They probably are one of my favorite desserts – that and ice cream – put them together – heaven!  I mean, how can you go wrong?  I guess it makes me feel like a kid or they’re just easy to eat and usually not too rich…usually…I like my treats good but not too rich and too sweet, crazy I know.  You can switch them up, too, making all different versions of cookies to go with all different yummies and themes – like a sweet tea time for girls with tea and coffee for an afternoon treat, or they’re great to just whip up quickly if someones coming over at the last minute or you need to take a friend something special.  They’re easy to make pretty on a plate and easy for everyone to grab, eat and enjoy.  Some cookies are great to have for breakfast (see my Heart Healthy Oatmeal Cookies), they’re great to dunk in some milk at any time or have with ice cream after a long or great day!  Cookies even make great sandwiches – ice cream sandwiches that is!  I love making those!
