Christmas Cooking

I have a canker sore on my tongue which is putting a damper on my desire to cook or eat this Christmas but I felt like I really should at least make one batch of Christmas cookies to have on hand for our guests.  So last night I made Pecan Crescents, in honor of my stepmother’s mom Jean, who shared the recipe with me some years ago.  These are so delicious and tasty with coffee.

Pecan Crescents

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt (not in the original recipe)
2 cups sifted flour
2 cups pecans, ground.  (I used my immersion blender.  It was a bit of a process but it worked.  Grandma Jean had a little hand-cranked grinder that she used for the purpose.)

Form into crescents and bake at 325 for 25 minutes.  Dust with powdered sugar.

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.
