So sweet. So delicate. So good.

This version of the wonderfully classic wedding cookie is nut-free... so it's perfect for those with nut allergies. Enjoy!


In a large bowl beat butter until creamy. Gradually beat in powdered sugar, then salt, vanilla, flour, and salt. When blended and smooth stir in oats. shape dough into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. you can also flatten by pressing with fingers. bake 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. while still warm roll in powdered sugar. cool on wire rack. makes 2 1/2 to 3 dozen cookies.
* PRE-HEAT OVEN TO 350 degrees

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.
