I am so pleased to be hopping along with the Virtual Cookie Exchange & Christmas Blog Hop. Thanks again, to Carol from Just Let Me Quilt who does a fabulous job coordinating this group. I had a pretty empty December and this hop is just the thing to put me in the Christmas mood. I love Christmas cookies, but won’t be visiting my family and succumbing to the cookies. So, this was just the excuse to make some and test out one of the old recipe cards.
Before we get to the cookies, I have a little coaster project for you. I love my self binding placemats that I make (the pattern is here). The instructions for the coasters are similar. The are perfect for some fun gifts or just a way to spruce up your house and use up a favorite fabric and batting scraps. Honestly, they take very little time and I have perfected the process so you should be pretty successful on your first go around.
Ah, and now to the cookies.
I have had some of my Grandmother’s recipes for two years and have meant to have a tea towel made with them. I decided I better try them; just in case anything was missing. I can attest, they turned out just right – melt in your mouth pecan balls!
Here is a version of the recipe that is easier than looking at the index card from my grandmother. She was known as Gi-Gi (great grandmother) in later years, so I called the file Gi Gi’s Pecan Balls.
Here’s the lineup of all the bloggers. Have fun collecting recipes and quilty ideas!
