Christmas Cookies

It's the most wonderfully delicious time of the year! It's time to make Christmas cookies!

I was on an email loop today discussing most-searched words on Google and Yahoo. And "Christmas Cookie" is quite popular right now! So I am sharing with you a fun, easy Christmas cookie recipe. Of course, this Snowball Christmas Cookie recipe is a variation of another popular cookie called (what else?) Wedding Cookies!

If you decide to make them, let me know how they turn out. And how about you? Got any great Christmas cookie recipes you'd like to share? Please comment! I'm all!
