    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    This is a great gift idea. Quick and cheap too. They're great on a cookie tray if you choose to make them yourself. For smaller gifts, put half the recipe into two pint jars and on the label adjust the yield to 2 dozen and adjust the tag ingredients to half.

      You really helped me out, Redneck Epicurean. We're having movie week in our staff lounge, in anticipation of spring break! My group is showing 'A Christmas Story', and we've decided to bring in X-masy cookies. You can't have X-mas cookies w/o Snowballs! This recipe tastes just like my Mom's. Thanks for posting!

      I made these up with Black Walnuts rather than pecans, for a Thank You gift to my Nephew and his sweet wife for all they have done for me during this difficult time. Of course, who can make cookies without eating a few themselves, surely not me. The recipe is easy, and quick, and the cookies are delicious to boot. A quick easy item to put into gift baskets, and I am certain will be loved by anyone who receives it. Thank You so much for a great recipe.
