Chocolate Almond “Wedding” Cookies

I love “Wedding” Cookies. Maybe you call them a different name, maybe they have a different nut in them, but I’m sure you know the cookies I talking about. I call the white cookies “snowballs” I tend to make them in the winter, and they look like snowballs.

I love that they are a shortbread cookie, no eggs needed. They are delicious and melt in your mouth. Well these do, sometimes I’ve had “Wedding Cookies and they are D-R-Y, I have no idea how they are so dry but If you’ve bitten into a cookie that looks like these and they are dry, something is wrong. They should melt in your mouth, after all they are buttery and sugary in a GOOD way!

Snowballs or Wedding Cookies

I even made “Pumpkin Wedding Cookies” they didn’t need to be rolled in anything they were so pretty on their own.
