    Two Southern Sweeties Butter Ball Cookies Our Butter Ball Cookies are buttery mounds of goodness with chopped nuts inside and rolled in powdered sugar. They are fantastic for tea parties, Christmas cookies and even just everyday treats. These have been a traditional Christmas cookie in our home since I was a little girl.

Aileen came over and sat at the kitchen table working on her laptop while I started mixing these little jewels up. The dough smells heavenly, just like Christmas to me. I rolled the little balls of dough into the size of marbles and…

Then I realized it was a Custard pie, well I had no choice but to make it. Coconut, Custard, and a…
