I got this butter ball recipe from my mother-in-law who is Greek. I make a double batch every Christmas and my hubby eats most of them. Enjoy!

I followed the directions only to end up with a rather bland cookie. They were also quite dry and tended to fall apart when I picked them up. Only a few were eaten and I had to throw the rest away.

The only thing tht I do different is add 7 tbls of conf. sugar and 7 tbls of water, that way the don't fall apart. I also omit the nuts and cloves. After they cool good I put conf. sugar in a bag and put cokkies in the bag so tney are covered in the sugar!! Awesome!
