Snowball Cookies

You have probably seen these types of cookies numerous times.
They are often know as Italian Wedding cookies, Russian Wedding Cookies, Mexican Wedding Cookies. I call them Snowballs, simply because they remind me of snowballs, and a whole plate full of them makes me think of making a bunch of snowballs as a kid getting ready for a big snowball fight!

These are certainly more fun to eat than snow, but they disappear as quickly as the snow does on a sunny day!

We don’t get snow where we live, but just about an hour away we got to enjoy two feet of snow! It was the first time our kids had really seen fresh snow like that. Instead of Christmas Cards, this year I sent out New Year Cards.

Happy New Year from all of us, and our cat Jack!

I’m still laughing over my hat, I knitted it with a funky yarn and it is warm and cozy, but somehow reminds me of a 40’s swim cap.
