Yet another variation on the snowball cookie theme. These cookies are only sweet on the outside and melt in your mouth on the inside. I've made these every christmas my entire life

My daughter is actually the one who made these, and she was so excited because they were so easy to make! The kids loved these, although I thought they were just a little bland for my taste. My daughter has already added these cookies to her Christmas plans this year! Thanks for sharing, Chelle.
