    I substituted the butter for Brummel & Brown yogurt spread for a perfect lactose free delight. Thank you for this yummy easy recipe.

    I make these every yrear at Christmas. When my kids were young they would help roll the balls and called them "snowball cookies". Though we use finely chopped walnuts in place of the oats. One of my favorites.

    I make these during Christmas and everyone enjoys them so much. I also use chopped nuts instead of oats. Thanks for the recipe.
