    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…

    Nonni’s Snickerdoodles

    These Snickerdoodles are a combination of sugar, cinnamon and soft moist deliciousness. My daughter Brianna absolutely LOVES Snickerdoodles!! So, a few years ago I added this awesome cookie to my list of Christmas cookies that I make each holiday season. To me, family recipes are always the best. I have been working hard at getting our families recipes together to share with our children and their children. This is one of those recipes. This recipe comes from my Mama, or Nonni as my children call her. She is the absolute best cook I have ever met. So when she told me she had this recipe for Snickerdoodles I KNEW they…

    Fruity Cookies

    I know, “Fruity Cookies” sounds a bit funny. I am really not sure where the name came from, possibly my Mama, but I just love saying it. These have been a tradition in my family at Christmas time since, well since I can remember. Fruit Cake is one of my very least favorite Christmas treats, although my husband absolutely loves it. These little cookies resemble them ever so slightly, however, I don’t believe I have met someone yet that has not loved these. They are also terrific to enjoy while dipping into a hot cup of coffee. I really hope that you will make a batch and try them. I…

    Can’t Eat Just One Gingersnaps

    Can’t Eat Just One Gingersnaps These Gingersnaps are absolutely AWESOME!!! You can’t eat just one, honestly, you can’t!! We even call them “Crack Cookies” LOL. When I had heard about these cookies, I called my mother in law (now former mother in law) and asked her to send her recipe. She sent me the recipe and the next day I decided I would whip up a batch. 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…

    Cute Cookie Bowls

    Cute Cookie Bowls Whether you are having a Birthday party for a child, needing a cute idea for an Easter basket, a dinner party, or just want to do something a bit special for the family, these little “cookie bowls” will be a hit. I personally like to make up a little sundae bar with all types of toppings and goodies. Put a scoop of ice cream into the cookie bowl and then let your guests (or family) go at it making their own creations. It’s a no brainer for children, but just let me tell y’all……….. These work wonderfully for little Easter Baskets. Cook the eggs. Use one of…
