Toffee_Noel_Nut_Balls (4)

Today I am In Katrina’s Kitchen sharing a twist on an old favorite Christmas cookie, my noel nut balls, for her month long tribute to holiday cookies.  I love making these melt in your mouth, nut-filled cookies rolled in powdered sugar (AKA Mexican wedding cookies, pecan crescents, snowballs, etc), but to make them even more […]

I attend two cookie exchanges each Christmas, plus I have oodles of cookies and candies that I make for my friends and neighbors.
