Is the cold weather giving you the winter blues? Warm up with a mug of hot cocoa and a plate of these delicious Sand Tart Snowball Cookies. A long time family favorite, you’ll love these not too sweet, two-bite bursts of cookie love.
Sand Tarts were always one of my Poppop’s favorite Christmas cookies. I’m pretty sure every Christmas cookie was his favorite, but he’s the one that would be most disappointed if these didn’t make an appearance on the annual Christmas cookie tray. Mommom always made them in the traditional crescent shape, but I gave them a winter makeover this year by turning them into snowballs. Their two-bite size is perfect for snacking and sharing alike.
