"The "snowballs" are delicious! Very easy to package and make! I added white chocolate chips and coconut and put them in snowflake covered bags calling them "snowballs in a bag"...they were a big hit t..." See moreo all who recieved them and then again when they were baked and eaten!"
"Did this for a church bake & craft sale. Decorated the jar, put it on a tray and surrounded it with baked cookies. The cookies were sort of dry and bland with all of the shortening, so for the secon..." See mored batch I used 1/2 cup of butter, 1/4 cup shortening and 1/4 cup margarine. I also added 1/4 tsp. of salt. Tips: 1) The powered sugar sticks better if you let cookies cool slightly then roll; let them completely cool and roll again. Can also add sugar sprinkles to the powered sugar for some color. 2) Mix did not completely fill the quart jar, so I put some powered sugar with colored sprinkles in a baggie, tied it with a ribbon and set it on top of mix."
