Tasty Tuesday: Snowballs in Mud

Hey everybody,

Today I'm sharing a recipe I found the Christmas before last from "Holiday Gifts from a Jar." These cookies are so delicious and so addictive. Plus with the name, you don't have to wait to next Christmas to whip up a batch!

Snowballs no longer just for throwing! ;)

You will need:

2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup granulated sugar

3/4 packed brown sugar

3/4 chopped pecan halves, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup golden raisins

1 package white chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, softened

2 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray cookie sheet or line with parchment paper; set aside.

Step 2: Beat butter in large bowl until smooth. Beat in large eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla. (Mixture may appear curdled.) Add dry ingredients; stir until well blended.

Step 3: Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto prepared cookie sheets, spacing about 4 inches apart. Press to flatten slightly.

Step 4: Bake 12-14 minutes or until firm in center. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheets; transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Step 5: Enjoy!
