Snowball/ Italian Wedding Cookies

My daughter came home for college and immediately wanted cookies. She wanted snowballs, I made gluten-free snowballs so I could eat some too. My favorite cookie at the holidays has always been the snowball. There is something about the first taste being the melty sugar from the powdered sugar coating.

For the adults, make some New Years Warm Tequila Punch and some other cookies, Carmel Apple Cookies and Mexican Spiced Chocolate Chip. Now you are ready for a holiday open house.
