My family has made these Butterball Cookies for as long as I can remember. We have always called them Butterballs because they are made with….butter! I know there are a lot of other names for them as well but they will always be called Butterball Cookies in our family.
Butterballs are one of many of my traditional Christmas cookies that I bake every year. I make these ahead of time and freeze them. I cover them in powdered sugar immediately from taking them out of the freezer and when they thaw, they are ready to eat.
