Another LOL cookie recipe that is the best! I make these for Christmas every year, along with LOL raspberry almond thumbprint cookie, lemon bars and the chewy jumbo chocolate chip cookies. Everyone wants my recipes - i just tell them to visit landolakes.com!

This was the best snowball cookie I have tried. They melted in your mouth. Everyone said they were to die for. The powdered sugar didn't melt into the cookie like other recipes I have tried, but then again they were gone in a day. I had tripled the recipe too. Of course using Land o Lakes butter was what made the cookie......
