Christmas Cookies

Jump To Recipe

One of my best childhood memories around this time of year, was piling up in the kitchen with my mom and sister and making an array of Christmas cookies/treats. Every year, mom would make a couple standards Christmas cookies that stick out, like White Trash (known to some as puppy chow), homemade fudge, and these little pecan butter Christmas cookies rolled in powdered sugar.  Every once in a while, we’d throw in a few others like the traditional sugar, cut out cookies or gingerbread men, but those three were always our favorites.

In a text thread last week between my family, mom asked if Courtney and I would like to bake Christmas cookies over the weekend. I raised my hand, yes and Court was in too.  On Sunday we all met over at my parent’s and each brought ingredients for two items.  We didn’t through all of them until we were all spent and ready to kick up our feet fireside, with a glass of wine and girl talk, but we made a few Christmas Cookies that were really delicious that I’m sharing today.

    Hi Jennifer,

    I was wondering if you are selling Christmas cookies or just your Tea cookies?

    Either way I would like to get some from you,where can I purchase?

    Thanks Much
