Snowball Cookies

Snowball Cookies | On The Creek

Because of my success with my Thanksgiving drink recipe series, I thought I was confident enough to start a Christmas cookie recipe series.

I spent some time after Thanksgiving dinner gathering my mom’s best Christmas cookie recipes.  The ones she’s been making without fail for longer than I’ve been alive.  I figured it wouldn’t be so difficult to whip up some Christmas cookies on my own and share here on my blog.

I was wrong.

I don’t know how I did it, but I took a recipe that was supposed to yield 3 dozen cookies and managed to make only about 18.  Also, if you notice, my snowballs are all various sizes because I don’t know what I’m doing.  But!  The recipe itself is a good one and I thought they photographed well so I decided to include them here.  Also, if I can make these cookies with very minimal problems, I think anyone can!  If I made this recipe again, I would make the snowballs super small to make them one bite cookies because I hate powdered sugar everywhere.  I would also probably get 36 cookies that way too?!

This is why my mom makes the Christmas cookies. 

I can see now that I still need her expertise so my kitchen doesn’t burn down. 

Aaand this is a good time to mention that I’m making Christmas dinner.  Should I order a new oven for December 26 delivery?
