Eggless Snowball Cookies ~ My favorite Holiday Cookies

It just wouldn’t be a holiday without these cookies at my house. I’m sure I’m not the only one who bakes similar cookies around Christmas. This delectable dessert is truly easy to make and spectacular enough to give as a gift to friends, family or teachers. They are sweet little crunchy balls and heavenly rolled up in a powdery blanket of confectioners sugar.IMG_4396-1 name bm The sugar melts on your tongue as you bite into each crunchy cookie. Yummy they are so good! These Cookies may be easy to make, but they’re hard to forget!
