Snow ball Cookies | Melt in mouth snowball cookies #snowballcookies

 Snowball Cookies are one of those Christmas classics that many consider a must-bake during the holidays. Buttery and nutty with an airy, melt-in-your-mouth texture like whipped shortbread, snowball cookies always remind me a little of cotton candy.

These Italian cookies are always popular throughout the winter. Serve them with coffee, tea, hot chocolate for a perfect pairing!
