This cookie always reminds me of my grandmother (Grammie). At Christmas time, she'd make these cookies (though she called them crescent cookies) for our Christmas Eve. This kind was my favorite as it was the kind of cookie I got to make with my hands. Pecans, butter, powdered sugar….What more could one want. It's been just over a year since Grammie passed on. Every time I make these cookies, I'll think of those days at the table in that bright yellow kitchen.
