In honor of National Cookie Day, we are sharing some of my Mom and Nana’s favorite Thanksgiving and Christmas cookie recipes today. This next one up is the absolutely decadent Pecan Lassies. Talk about bite-size morsels of heaven in your mouth! I have to tell you right now, the picture doesn’t do them justice. In order to really appreciate these little treats, you need the ones warm out of the oven with little bits of that brown sugar, buttery goodness oozing down the outside of the crust to truly appreciate these little guys!
These are – hands down – my absolute favorite cookies of the holiday season. They have several different names as well – pecan tassies, crunch cups, pecan tarts – doesn’t matter what you call them, they are just as delicious and made relatively the same.
I plan on doing some baking this weekend, and these little guys are definitely on the list of treats to make. I just hope that I do my Mom and Nana proud. I’m sure they will both be looking down from heaven, over my shoulder, waiting with a handful of flour to toss at me if I do something wrong!
Have a Great Week!
