Christmas Almond Balls ~A very simple and delicate, almond and buttery cookie great for the holidays or as a gift one of my favorites.
Warning- You can’t have just one. So make two batches at a time.
These have quickly become a must have on my Holiday baking list.
Simple ingredients combined together to create a fast and easy preparation.
You have everything you need to make these cookies already in your pantry.
Flour, butter, sugar, nuts, almond and vanilla extract are mixed together, rolled and baked.
Sprinkle in powdered sugar if desired as you place them on a plate.
These can be made any size you wish but will cause cooking time to vary.
You simply will love how easy the kitchen cleanup becomes also. Your family and friends will gravitate to these over your other baked cookies so make sure to keep extra on hand.
Christmas snow balls come to mind when these are made. Serve with milk and avoid the food fight that may start!
