Count Down to Christmas

Black Friday came and went, Cyber Monday came and went, and  I suppose the count down to Christmas has begun.  And today is the 1st of December.

This year I decided to greet the count down by making a new cookie to see if it would make it’s way into my 2011 Holiday Cookie Box.

These are a rolled cookie but the dough is very easy to work with.

This recipe for (Pecan Cookies) came from My Recipes.Com . It appears that it originated  from Julianna Grimes, Cooking Light – December 2011.

I made a couple of adaptations to the original recipe.  If you visit the link above you will find the original recipe.

For my version, I added an 1/8 of a teaspoon of Vietnamese Cinnamon to the batter and I used walnuts in place of pecans.  I toasted the walnuts which I sprinkled lightly with brown sugar (prior to toasting) for about 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

These cookies turned out great. Their buttery, nutty, flavor makes them delicious.  They definitely will find themselves in my 2011 Holiday Cookie Box!
