Hey y’all!! Are you as surprised as I am that I’ve been posting so much? I just have so much I want to share with you all before Christmas!! This past weekend we finally got our turn with that horrible cold front that was moving across the country and since we were trapped inside I started round one of my holiday baking. It was fun experimenting with lots of old and new recipe ideas and I had some winners of the bunch so the next few days will be full of recipes. I will start with one of my favorite classic recipes- Pecan Snowball Cookies!
I love these cookies, they were one of my favorites growing up-they just melt in your mouth! My grandma used to make them and I loved helping her, delicately dipping the cookies in the powdered sugar while they were still warm from the oven! Unfortunately, my three boys don’t love helping me make them, but they sure love eating them up once they are done!
