  1. These have been a family favorite for many years!

    1. Sometimes the old family favorites are the BEST! :)

  2. Yes, I agree with Anne above. These have been a traditional holiday cookie in my family as well. Depending on what is available, we sometimes make them with walnuts instead of pecans. I have both types of nut trees growing on my property. Family loves them either way.

    1. Some years I forget about them, they are always a favorite of my family. Lucky YOU with two types of nut trees growing on your property, my family only gets to live with one nut - ME! LOL
