More Holiday Baking

Here are a few more recipes of cookies that I put in our gift baskets. The famous snowball cookies, these are some of the most requested and take the most work. They are delicate but taste so good! I find they are worth it but these definitely have to be made when snackers aren’t in the house.

Snowball Cookies
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cups finely chopped almonds
(you can use pecans or walnuts)
1/4 cup of sugar
1 cup of butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
powdered sugar

Heat oven to 325°F.

Combine all ingredients except powdered sugar in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until well mixed.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 18-25 minutes or until very lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes; roll in powdered sugar while still warm and again when cool.


Another favorite cookie is the peanut butter with a kiss on top. My recipe is the easiest and actually gluten free.
