Everyone loves this recipe for Simple Snow Ball Cookies.  They melt in your mouth and are totally delectable. You’ll love the easy recipe too. Enjoy!

 

These melt in your mouth snow balls are the perfect cookie for holidays to share with family and friends. 

Great to bring along to potluck dinners too.

  They pack up easily and travel well.

I make them every year for Christmas and Hanukkah time.

Thanks to my dearest friend Regina who came up with this fabulous cookie recipe. She is the best baker and cook too. She really outdid herself with these delicious cookies, they are so good!

I love making these with my son Josh, they have no eggs so it’s great to make with him and not have to worry about raw eggs.

The kids also have fun rolling them up and then rolling them again in the powdered sugar.

 

One warning. They are so yummy, you’re probably going to want to eat a bunch of them right after you roll them in the powdered sugar. LOL! Try not to so you can share with your family. 

Good thing, the recipes makes a great big batch of these gems.
