Yummy! The Best Texas Christmas Recipe
I don’t know about you, but I am super excited about Christmas and even more excited about leaving my famous Texas cookies for Santa.
Since I was a little girl, my sister and I would always make sure to make these famous cookies and leave them near the fireplace for Santa to enjoy. Now I may be older and not mailing my wish list off to the big guy these days, but that doesn't mean I've lost the spirit of making these delicious cookies with my child.
When you bite into these little balls of Christmas, it really does take you back to a time of being a small child and loving the holidays and everything Christmas is about.
These crowding-pleasing cookies mixed with walnuts, dates, and raisins are a fruity/nutty treat that is always a family favorite that my family just absolutely loves..
I hope you and your family can enjoy these amazing cookies this holiday season. Merry Christmas, Texas!
