Cookies For Santa

Remember when you used to pick out the best, most perfectly shaped and delicately frosted cookies, place them on your special use-only-on-Christmas-Eve plate, and leave them out (along with a glass of milk and a few carrots) for Santa? Ok, so that may have been a long time ago and I know that I'm too old to believe in Santa Claus (when my mom told me in fifth grade I cried), but I like to make a fresh batch of cookies on the morning of Christmas Eve with him in mind. Even though the cherry cheeked old man won't be visiting me tonight, it's nice to have the house smelling of fresh baked cookies. If you are like me and want a tasty little sweet bite to munch on while you sip your spiked hot chocolate and wrap up last minute presents, then do yourself a favor and make these snowball cookies. For the recipe
