Lemon Snowballs

~Cookie Recipe~

 

Today I’m sharing another cookie recipe from our holiday cookie day. These Lemon Snowballs are delicious little crunchy cookies that have a sweet lemon flavor. They have the added flavor of nuts and confectioners’ sugar.

This recipe comes from the 2003 Taste of Home’s Christmas Cookies recipe book, but I did make a few adaptations to the recipe.

The original recipe calls for almonds, but since I had walnuts on hand…that’s what I added. I also left out the grated lemon peel…because I didn’t have any…I tend to make due!

Even though I made a few adjustments, I’m sharing the original recipe with you today.

Enjoy!
