Fireballs

I am a contrarian. I like some traditions but with food, not so much. Snowballs are a classic Christmas cookie and called by a few names, but for our purposes we will go by snowballs. I’m known to like things a little hotter, so why not the fireball? Cinnamon in the cookie and cinnamon in the coating. Spice-in-spice goodness! I hope you like it.
