Snowballs

There seemed to be some problems with my reblogged post, so lets see if this works!  This is one of our very early posts and we have so many newer followers since this post we thought we would share it again. This is a Christmas staple and an excellent addition to any Christmas cookie tray. We are making these right now, Evie is rolling in coconut as I type!

I should call these cookies Newfoundland snowballs.

These are cookies that I grew up eating and Evie loves them now.  I haven’t met anyone that didn’t like them.  I made a batch recently and shared with a few people.  They are really easy, no bake and quick to make with few ingredients.

The coconut used is fine or medium desiccated unsweetened coconut.

Put the first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan and melt stirring to combine.

Into another bowl add the next 3 ingredients and mix to combine.

Add the melted butter mixture to the oat mixture and mix.  Let this cool, I usually put it in the fridge for about half an hour until it will hold shape when rolled into balls.

Roll into balls and then roll in coconut.  That is it!

In My Kitchen January 2016

The holidays are over and a new year is beginning.  I like this transition and like to spend it quietly.  There is also a transition in the IMK, now gathering at Maureen’s.  I just saw her bread pudding made from banana bread and it looks amazing!

Here is a little peek into my kitchen since our last IMK post.

Leftovers of candied pecans, though we keep adding then atop salads so they will be all gone soon.

Royal Canadian Rum Salami.  We just discovered this after my brother brought some over, it is very good.

This blend of whiskey and maple syrup is also very good, served just over ice.  We tried it first last year on a trip to Mont Tremblant and liked it, then found it at the LCBO just a few days ago.

I have a few things under the tree that haven’t made it to the kitchen yet.  I will save those for February.  Now I have to get that tree taken down and all of those decorations packed up. Ugh!
