Snow Balls

Snow Balls

The name Snow balls itself will give you a picture how it would look like, isn't it? Actually, these small snowy balls has many names. Mexican wedding Cakes or Russian Tea Cakes or Christmas cookies etc. But i feel that the name SNOW BALLS is apt for this wonderful melt in mouth cookies. Another highlight for these cookies are that they are eggless.
