One of the cookies I made for Christmas this year, though it didn't look much like a typical Christmas cookie! They were fantastic and I received many compliments!

This is a family favorite! My co-workers always request I bring these in around the Holiday time, as well. I prefer to use walnuts, instead of pecans. I use a 1/4 measuring cup to scoop the batter, and bake 6 to a cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees about 15 minutes. Makes big, chewy cookies. :)
