Holiday Snowball Cookies

Holiday Snowball Cookies

Mom made these for Christmas every year, as long as I can recall. She also made them for hundreds of weddings! She would let us (the kids) do the sugaring at the end. I tweaked my mom's recipe by using some fat-free items and also adding the milk and sour cream. The original version was a harder cookie. This will make a softer one. These can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated.
