34 Days Until Christmas.....Bake and Freeze

Start to bake things that can be frozen. Dough balls, bars and quick breads always freeze well. Just make sure that they are wrapped carefully to prevent freezer burn. When those unexpected guests stop by, you can have fresh cookies coming out of the oven in a flash.


Here is a cookie that freezes well. It is also called Mexican wedding cakes. This is one that our family has been making for as long as I can remember. I hope you enjoy them too.
Snow Balls

1 cup soft butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
Sift together sugar and flour. Mix with butter. Add vanilla and nuts. Roll into balls the size of a walnut. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Roll in powdered sugar while still warm and roll again in powdered sugar when cool.
