Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Snowball Cookies

Oh these are soooo good. I can't even begin to tell you!
But I warn you they are NOT low fat. You will have to substitute on your own there lol.
Tis the season!!


1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 TBS water
1 tsp vanilla
2 cup flour
1 cup quick oats
1/2 tsp salt
jarred maraschino cherries or Hershey's kisses or miniature snickers! The possibilities are endless
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 cups flaked coconut, chopped

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar, water and vanilla.
Combine flour, oats, and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture.
Shape a tablespoon of dough around each cherry or Hershey's kiss, forming a ball.
Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 for 18-20 mins. or until bottoms are browned. Cool on racks.
Combine sugar and enough milk to achieve smooth dipping consistency.
Coat cookies in mixture then roll in the coconut.

Okay, so these snowballs look just like what my grandma always made for we kids all my growing up days and for some strange reason (unknown to me) we called them Grandma Grunt cookies. She didn't put coconut on hers, but otherwise they are the same.

These would be great cookies to hand out to strangers in a waiting room, huh?


Have a super duper Christmas!!!
