Walnut Snowball Cookies

I truly love this time of year … I love Christmas and I love baking all sorts of goodies so I can share with pretty much everyone I know πŸ™‚ I also like that K enjoys this whole idea of baking yummies but is nice enough to not eat them all until I have given it all away … I have made these cookies over the years around Christmas time and they have ALWAYS been a hit … did a taste test with K and the inlaws and they loved it too … Super easy and not a lot of ingredients so it can be easily made with kids πŸ™‚

Hope you enjoy this season as much as I do!
