This isn’t pecan pie. But it seems to be the “sensible”, rich cousin (cuz it has no nuts- get it?). A vehicle for butter, cream, egg yolks, brown sugar… Oh, & a buttery, oatmeal cookie crust!

Home-baked Christmas cookies have been part of a tradition in our home- Christmas memories, with recipes passed down through generations. The kids have even helped (and everyone certainly helps with the eating!).
There are plenty of recipes available for these, but this is the one I use. Having it written in weights makes it quicker to make! Another timesaver: Trader Joe’s carries blanched almonds. (We used to blanch ’em ourselves- much more work…)
Stuck in the kitchen wondering how cookie-decorating took so long?! Or- the kids lost interest & left you with the work? THESE cookies are easy for all, but so fun, with a simple, embossed design…
Ginger’s great- helping w/inflammation &blood sugar/serum cholesterol/cortisol levels. Not that I’m chowing down on Gingerbread cookies for health reasons. Easy decorating w/fruits & nuts tho!
I ran an experiment… one out of three is not great, but I did find one cookie that was good made with whole wheat & palm sugar; they subbed just fine for processed ingredients. Great with tea!
