Nan May's Snowballs

Recipe by  

"Growing up in Newfoundland, I looked forward to Christmas each year for the huge family get-togethers, and of course the food that went along with them. This recipe is one that my Grandmother made every year. Definitely one of my favourite Christmas cookies."

I too grew up in Newfoundland and these were a "must-have" during the Christmas season. My kids loved them, especially when they helped make them. Thanks for sharing !! :)
