Description

Well known as Mexican Wedding Cookies, this is a melt in your mouth, shortbread type butter cookie. Very popular at Christmas, these "Christmas Snowballs" are a staple of many diets, across many cultures, as a daily treat with coffee or tea. We take fresh ground walnuts and very lightly sea salt and toast them in the oven. They are hand chopped, crushed into fine pieces, and married to our homemade buttery cookie dough. This cookie bakes to a shortbread like crunch, and is tossed in confectioner's powdered sugar. We call them Butterballs, but they are also very well known as Mexican Wedding Cookies, Snowballs, and Russian Tea Cake cookies. The history of this cookie dates back to the 18th century, try them today to see why they'll be around for many more.

"JUST LIKE GRANDMA"S"
These are great! They taste just like my Grandmother used to make every year around the holidays. They also freeze very well so you don't have to wait until the holidays to enjoy them. When I tried the first one, it was like a flashback in time. 50+ years ago. Simply delicious!
