Great idea

So I wanted to do a cookie exchange with new recipes and a friend suggested to post the cookies on the blog...so if you are reading this and have a favorite christmas cookie recipe please post it on your blog!

Mine is snowball cookies...they are easy to make, festive, and get tons out of it!

3 sticks of butter 3 cups flour
3/4 cup powder sugar 1 2/3 cup of Nestle toll house white choc swirl
1 tbsp. vanila 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
1/2 tsp salt Extra powder sugar

Preheat oven to 375-ungreased cookie sheet

1) Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a bowl until creamy
2) Gradually beat in flour
3) Stir in morsels and nuts
4) Shape into level tablespoons on dough. They do not flatten out, they stay rounded so you can get alot on a cookie sheet.
5) Bake 10-12 min. when it comes us, remove and sprinkle with powder sugar.

MMMMMM MMMMMM GOOD! Really good by itself or dipped in Hot chocolate or coffee!

I'm going to go on a limb and make some Christmas cookies this weekend. (Like I sheepishly told you before, I've never made Christmas cookies before. I know! I know! How in the world have I been a mother for 10 years??) I'm definitely going to try this recipe! I'll let you know how it goes. xoxoxo

BUCKEYE CANDY

CANDY:

1 stick softened butter
1 3/4 c. (1 18 oz. jar) creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
About 1 lb. confectioners' sugar

CHOCOLATE COATING:

1 (12 oz.) pkg. of chocolate bark

Cream butter, peanut butter, and vanilla together, adding confectioners' sugar until proper consistency is reached. Roll candy into 1-inch balls and place on wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Melt the bark over the stove (or microwave) but keep the chocolate mixture warm while you dip each candy. Using a toothpick, dip each ball, covering about 3/4 of candy. Place candy on sheet to cool.
Makes 8 dozen.
YUMMY & SUPER EASY!!!!
