SANTAS SNOW BALLS.. (Cookies)
Nancy J. Patrykus
and these cookies.!
They are very simular to a Russian Tea Cake or a Mexican Wedding Cookie.
My recipe uses whole wheat flour, and almond flavoring.
This gives them an wonderful different taste.
Maybe the use of anise extract would an be a nice flavor change also.
I am sure Santa would approve.
When you wind santa up ,his arm goes up and down, like he is scrubbing himself!...LOL

I think there is a little bit more flavor with the old time oats.THey are not ground up like the instant oats are.
