Italian Amaretto Butter Cookies

Saturday, November 28, 2020
These Italian Amaretto Butter Cookies are a basic butter cookie that melts in your mouth with the first bite.

The popular butterball cookie is perfect for the holiday and back in the 1960s were referred to as snowballs.

This easy recipe can be modified easily with flavoring and nuts of choice but always dusted at the end and rolled into a snowy powdered sugar.

They make the perfect addition to any cookie tray around the holiday season.

We love Christmas time for baking cookies and you may also like to try several other holiday cookies we love that add that spirit to the season of baking.

The additions and changes are pretty much endless when you get creative so don't miss my optional additions and suggestions below
