I love my Bath Tub Santa,
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

How to Make SANTAS SNOW BALLS.. (Cookies)


  1. Beat butter till creamy, in a large bowl.
    Gradually beat in powdered sugar, salt,almond flavoring,and flour.
    Add the oats and stir.

    *NOTE: Old fashioned oats or quick oats can be used.
    I think there is a little bit more flavor with the old time oats.THey are not ground up like the instant oats are.
  2. Make balls of dough about 1 inch round and place on a ungreased cookie sheet.
    Bake in a pre-heated 350F oven
    ..for about 20 minutes.
  3. While warm ...roll in powdered sugar.
    Put cookies on a rack to cool.
    Then roll again in powdered sugar .
    Makes about 3 dozen.
    Enjoy....I know SANTA does!
    His cookie plate is always empty!!
