These cookies are a staple in our family around the holidays. Most people make their snowball cookies with pecans, but my mom always made hers with almonds. I love the unique taste and texture of the almonds and it gives the cookies a little something extra. The cookies will simply melt in your mouth and good luck just eating one!
