Check out these Snowflake Cookies. You may have heard them called Wedding Cookies or Pecan Puffs, but at my house these have always been a special treat only in December.
These delicate cookies are light as a snowflake and melt-in-your-mouth tender. Last week I took them to a gathering of my girlfriends and one friend said, in all honesty, “That is the best cookie I have ever had, really ever, in my whole life!” Now we won’t get into how long she has graced the earth, but that was quite the compliment.
If there is one downside to these little sweets it’s that each batch makes only 12 cookies. (Doubling is not recommended, but repeat batches are highly suggested!) But having a small batch of cookies is nice when most of my cookie recipes make three to six dozen. I look at them as the diamonds among the cookie platter. May your cookie platters overflow!

What you're saying..
I just had to write to let you both know how much I appreciate your cookbook Desperation Dinners! I bought it about a year ago, and you should see it. It’s in bad shape – splattered, stained, dog-eared and well-used. I’ve bought a lot of cookbooks, and at most, I get one recipe out of it, and then it sits on the shelf.
Your cookbook is really different. I actually use it. I use your cookbook so much, and have sung it’s praises so often, that now whenever I put a good meal on the table, my husband automatically asks, “Is this a Desperation Dinner?
