Snowball Cookies

  



I love these cookies! The only catch is that it doesn't really curl up ... and it must be two or three times that I do them and always the same thing each time. Do you have a recommendation? Or should we put them in the freezer once shaped and then bake them frozen? I know you don't answer all of them but now, I think there are several of us having the same problem .. Merciii
