Snowball Cookies (BOULES A LA RUSSE)  
World Traditional Recipe スイス

Swiss style cookies. “A LA RUSSE” means “Russian style”. As Russia is often associated with winter snow, “a la Russe” is sometimes used in the names of baked goods dusted with confectioners’ sugar. Use a generous amount of vanilla essence to enhance the flavor. Cornstarch is used in this recipe, but you can substitute it with any other kind of starch.
