Cinnamon Mexican Wedding cookies or Snow Ball cookies as they’re commonly called are delectable, easy to make (yes, it’s true!), and are truly a staple of the holiday season. While some cookie recipes are too complicated for little fingers, this one will easily get the kids involved in every simple step. Give the cookies as a gift to teachers, friends, or loved ones, but be warned that one bite into these mouth-watering powdery treats and you’ll want to keep the whole batch to yourself.
