mini Pecan Cookies

it was a busy weekend of attempting to finish up some yarn projects. alas, a lot of attempt but not much finished. :( i made some apple chips saturday and despite it's bake time of 2 hours, i felt like i was tending to them more than i would've liked. but they turned out exceptionally well. too bad i didn't take pix. no worries, i still have a bag of macintosh apples left to slice up. because of my inactivity this weekend, we're going to go back a month to some bite-size cookies i made.

i made all my presents for xmas. for jab's father, i went with some pecan cookies. initially i was going to attempt some version of peach pie cookies but that just wasn't going to happen when the fruits weren't in season. pecans, however, were everywhere. i used the Life and Loves of Grumpy's HoneyBunch's recipe.

they came out golden, gooey and sweet. i slightly underbaked them as i figured they had to make the trip to TN, but also, in case jab's dad wanted to heat them up, they'd be perfect. and they came out so adorable!

  1. Mini cookies, I have always thought, are pure genius: the perfect way to enjoy what you love without as much guilt (of course, that's assuming you can stop yourself from eating all of them, which I'm not especially good at).

    Glad you got to make some apple chips. Now I want some again.
