Lighter-than-air snowflake cookies a hit for the holidays
Last week I shared with you my Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies, which are perfect for sharing. This week, we are turning to another holiday favorite — Snowflake Cookies. You may have heard them called wedding cookies or pecan puffs, but at my house these have always been a special December treat.
These delicate cookies are light as a snowflake and melt-in-your-mouth tender. Last week, I took them to a gathering with my girlfriends, and one said, "That is the best cookie I have ever had — really ever — in my whole life!"
I look at these snowflakes as the diamonds among the gems on a cookie platter. If there is a downside to these little sweets, it's that each batch makes only 12 cookies. But having a small batch of cookies is nice when most of my other recipes make three to six dozen cookies. While doubling is not recommended, repeat batches are highly suggested!
Many of you, dear readers, have shared your favorite cookie recipes and amazing stories with me, and they are posted on kitchenscoop.com for all to enjoy. Check them out, and happy holiday baking! May your cookie platters overflow!
