It’s the holiday season and I’ve been craving my mom’s snowball and poop cookies. In an effort to satisfy my sweet tooth I’ve been trying out a few different Paleo desserts and this Cookies and Cream Paleo Smoothie really hit the spot.
I texted my mom the other day and asked if she’d be making the usual cookies for Christmas this year. The poop and snowball cookies come around every year and basically I told her she had to make them because I was totally jonesin’ for them.
Have I mentioned how bad sugar is? :p It’s like crack, an addiction, hard to get away from, and you can clearly see I’ve been having way too many sweets because mom’s Christmas cookies are all I’ve been able to think about.
Soooo let’s talk more about the poop cookies. We call them poop cookies because that’s exactly what they look like, and no, they’re not Paleo. The poop cookies are those non-bake drop cookies and they have oats, semi-sweet chocolate and peanut butter among the relatively small list of ingredients. But OMG, I used to be able to down a couple dozen of them in one sitting, I loved them so much!
The snowball cookies are really called Walnut Dreams and I know they’re commonly referred to as Mexican Wedding Cookies but I’ve never tasted another recipe that could match the one that’s been passed down from my grandma to my mom to me. Our version of snowball cookies only have a few ingredients: walnuts, butter, sugar, vanilla and flour. Oh! and they go straight out of the oven and are immediately rolled in powdered sugar. Amazing, I tell you! A few years ago I tried making a Paleo version of the cookie and they weren’t bad, but they were no Walnut Dreams.
