Swedish Butter Balls

Hello everyone,

It was a mild but very rainy day here today so I thought it would be a good day to bake some cookies for the annual cookie exchange that I have been in the past few years. I am making Swedish Butter Balls again this year because not only are they good but they are easy to make too.

We might as well try one with a cup of tea.
