Tis the season for Christmas baking. I found these delectable little morsels in the Taste of Home Best Loved Recipes Cookbook (pg 282). They are easy to make and taste delicious. Perfect for a holiday get-together. Just make sure the have napkins nearby as the powdered sugar gets a little messy.

After you take them out of the oven let them cool down just a bit and then roll in powdered sugar. When they are completely cool you will roll them in sugar a second time. I found the best method to completing this step is to make a foil pouch, toss in a couple of the cookies and gently shake. It works much quicker than rolling each one individually.
