Snowball Christmas Cookies, sometimes known as Russian Tea Cakes, Butterball Cookies or Mexican Wedding Cookies. Buttery, nutty, melt-in-your-mouth shortbread lightly dusted with confectioners sugar. A holiday must!

As you know, I don’t do a lot of baking, but the holiday season brings out the best baker we can be in all of us. Snowball Christmas Cookies are my holiday favorite. No other cookie comes close to their nutty, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth flavor and the dusting of confectioners sugar seals the deal.

I love them with a mug of hot tea and literally eat one after the next with little self control. They blend quickly with just a few ingredients and the skill level to make these cookies is easy ~ just how I like it.
