Snow Drops are a staple of the Holidays for me and my family, It just wouldn't be the Holidays without some of these beauties. I first showcased it on Holiday Baking Championship on Food Network in 2016. It wowed the judges and made there ears perk up.

I made a batch for Christmas this year and everyone loved them, including my three-year-old granddaughter! They keep remarkably well and are moist and flavorful even a few days after baking.

Every Christmas I make baskets for friends and loved ones filled with baked and canned goodies. Each year I try to change it up and add new things. I made more than one batch of these and they were indeed the hit of the holidays! The only bad thing I can say about these is that my husband is upset because I didnt make a batch for us! I need to get on that as I am craving them too!!
