When I think of Xmas or Mennonite baking, I think of these delicious melt-in-your-mouth bites. When I was too lazy to make them, I used to be able to get them at the local farmers market.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat butter until creamy; add sugar and blend some more. Mix in the flour, nuts, vanilla and water.
  2. Chill until firm enough to shape with your fingers into small round balls.
  3. Bake at 400 F for 10 minutes, but watch them - remember they are snow drops, shouldn't even turn golden.
  4. Roll in sifted icing sugar as soon as you remove them from the oven. Mmm, toasty fingers coated in melted sugar!
