Warm & Cozy Christmas Card & Snowball Cookies

  Hello, Glad you stopped by. Today I am sharing a hot Cocoa Christmas card.

To make this card I used a napkin. Thought the image of hot Cocoa in a cup was cute.

I stamped the snowflakes in Real Red Ink. The snowflakes are a retired set from Stampin Up.

Used a stitched circle die and also a circle punch. Picked up the paper from JoAnn's. Also added a little red satin ribbon. 


Since it's the season of giving I thought I would share another recipe. 

This one is for Snowball Cookies. A perfect cookie for the Holidays.

♥️  Snowball Cookies, also known as Russian Tea Cakes or Mexican Wedding Cake, are a delightfully nutty little balls of powdered sugar covered goodness! These classic holiday shortbread cookies come out every year at Christmas🎄 and everybody loves them! They are messy, but sooo worth it!! Enjoy! 


Snowball Cookies 




1cup butter softened 

1 tsp. vanilla extract

  2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour sifted 

 1/2 cup powdered sugar 

  1 cup pecans chopped fine

  Additional powdered sugar for coating 

  INSTRUCTIONS Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, beat butter and vanilla until smooth and creamy, about 3-4 minutes. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, powdered sugar and salt, then stir into the butter, mixing just until combined.

 Mix in the chopped pecans. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place them 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. 

 What’s great about these cookies the don’t spread allot during baking.

 Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned on the bottoms. DO NOT OVER BAKE.  

Remove from oven and wait just until they are cool enough to handle but still warm, then roll in powdered sugar and transfer to a separate baking sheet or parchment. Wait until cool, then roll in powdered sugar again to generously coat. 

  Store in an airtight container. Tips: • Don’t over bake • Don’t over knead the dough • Chill dough balls in freezer 15 minutes before baking (put in oven chilled) 

  I enjoy these cookies with a cup of coffee. So good!


That's all from me. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you can make it back. 

Merry Christmas!
