You should share your favorite Christmas cookie recipe with us. :)


It’s a tie between like…four different cookies, but I really like these, so okay.

1 cup (two sticks) butter or margarine, softened
½ cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ¼ cups all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ cup finely chopped pecans (I crushed mine in a food processor or a blender so it’s very, very fine)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix the butter, sugar and vanilla. Work in flour, salt and nuts until the dough holds together. Shape the dough into 1” balls and place them on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 10 – 12 minutes or until set but not brown. While warm, roll in confectioners’ sugar. Cool and roll in sugar again.

Makes 4 dozen cookies
