    Butter Ball Cookies

    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. I used to love helping my Mom roll them in the powdered sugar when they were still warm out of the oven. Of course, a few always managed to pop into my mouth. One of the reasons I love making these at Christmas is that I always make dozens of cookies and candies to mail out to…

    Pizzelles

    Some of y’all may not know what Pizzelles are but let me assure you, they are delicious! Pizzelles are an Italian cookie that can be found now days in grocery stores. For me, they are not Pizzelles unless they are homemade. The most popular flavor is Anise, however, that is not a flavor that my family and I enjoy so we make Vanilla and Chocolate. These cookies are also used to make cannoli shells in many families. Now these do require a special piece of equipment called a Pizzelle Iron.  The Cucina Pro Pizzelle Baker is my favorite. These cookies are very simple to make. I will tell you straight…
