335:365 Remember When...

Every Christmas my grandmother made these fantastic cookies for me and my cousins. It was the only time of year that she didn't fuss that the cookie plate was continually getting raided. She's just keep making them and putting them out for us. We adored her for it...it's one of my favorite childhood memories.

 

She used the little chopper pictured above to grind the pecans that we'd collect out of the back yard. We had two huge pecan trees that put out hundreds of nuts each year. Sitting in the kitchen cracking and picking out the meat was our chore as kids. We didn't mind...it meant more cookies for us and those she loved so well!
