Cherry Pistachio Snowball Cookies

Cherry Pistachio Snowball Cookies
Snowball cookies are a classic Christmas cookie, and this recipe dresses them up fancy. Pistachio nuts and maraschino cherries make these cherry pistachio snowball cookies festive and fun!

There was the thumbprint cookies with either red or green jelly, buckeye balls, imitation strawberry cookies and finally, snowball cookies. I hated that green jelly with a passion, the strawberries were far too sweet, the snowballs were dry and had too many nuts for my liking. The buckeye balls, however, were fabulous.
