{Homemade in December} Christmas Cookies


 Photobucket
First of all I just have to tell you how excited I am!
I am officially on Winter break. Lets all give a great HOORAY! No homeschooling for two glorious weeks!!
Don't get me wrong I like being a teaching mommy to my littles, but this break is a much needed thing. I am all about the next two weeks of sewing, crafting, watchign lots of movies, and having lots of PJ days!
I Can't wait..

Now that I have shared my glorious news lets get into this afternoons post....

 I LOVE Christmas treats!cookies, cakes, fudge, candy, whatever it is I love it and so does my family.
We LOVE to bake at Christmas time, which is why I thought we needed a FULL week of Christmas yumminess. Today I have a cookie recipe, which I actually shared on The Small Things blog this month.

Here it goes...

ENJOY!
---------------------------
I don't know about you, but once December 1st hits,
I go into Christmas treat mode.

My little Miss and I venture into the kitchen and are not seen for days
for a while. We love baking and baking at Christmas time is 100 times more fun!

One of our favorite cookie recipes, at Christmas time, goes by many names. I have heard them called Mexican Wedding cookies, Russian Tea cookies, and Christmas Tea Cookies.

We just call them  
YUMMY!

They may not be beautiful, but they make up
for that with their amazing taste!

Want to make some of your own?

Here's How

Preheat oven to 350*

Cream 1 cup butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar until  smooth. Add remaining ingredients. 2 cups flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp  vanilla and 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts. Roll into balls about the size of a  small walnut. Bake for 12 15 minutes. Roll in powdered sugar while still  warm.


I hope you have a chance to try out this recipe this holiday season.

I have even included a printable recipe card for you.

Happy Baking!

  1. Danielle,
    they seem to be very yummy! They could make great tea cookies, or coffee cookies. They look a lot like the Christmas cookies we make here in Greece. Maybe I should write the recipe too! Well, happy eating! lol!
    Love, Olga
