I grew up watching and helping my mother make homemade cookies. They were always in our school lunch boxes. Some family favorites here...

Favorite Cookie Recipes


You can easily find some of the other homemade cookie recipes that I have already shared. In this post I will add two more favorite cookie recipes that have made it into cookie tins that have being given out as early Christmas gifts for many years.

Butter is a prime ingredient in both of these recipes, so any butter cookie lover should be interested in these variations.

In other articles you will find a recipe for an Old Fashioned Chocolate Cookie from my grandma that actually predated the manufacture of chocolate chips. A delicious Christmas Cookie recipe that I got from a neighbor back in the 1960's; a Raisin Molasses Sugar Cookie and a healthful good and crunchy Oatmeal Cookie are among some of our other favorites.

Now we are about to add two more scrumptious cookie recipes to this batch! Stay tuned for more additions as they are written and shared.

Favorite cookie recipe...Pecan Fingers


My mother always included these rich cookies in her Christmas cookie assortment and she baked many different kinds for us as we were growing up. As a child, these were one of my favorites although my tastes have changed a bit as an adult and I now have others as favorites.

Pecan Fingers are distinctive when mixed in with other cookies because of their distinctive color and shape. If you like plain butter cookies and if you like nuts...you should really like these!

Cookie Ingredients...


1 cup butter

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon water

2 cups flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups ground pecans

Extra powdered sugar for decorating the cookies after they are baked.

(See what I mean about the butter and nuts? This is a butter type cookie extraordinaire!)

Instructions

These pecan fingers are easy to make.

Cream the butter and then add the sugar, vanilla and water.

Next add the flour, salt and nuts.

Form into small finger-like rolls.

Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour.

After baking and while still warm, roll in the extra powdered sugar.

Tip: After all the cookies are rolled you can sift the powdered sugar to remove any cookie bits that might have broken off during this process and save the remaining powdered sugar for future uses.

After these are completely cooled, store in closed containers. These are very delicate cookies, so handle with care. They could also be rolled into a ball shape if a different look is desired. Of course then the pecan finger title would not be quite as appropriate. (Smile)

Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

Add the other ingredients mixing well after each addition.

Use rounded teaspoon of dough and roll into a ball.

Put on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten.

These cookies freeze well.

Cookie Baking


My cookie baking is done for a while and with many cookie tins readied and being given as gifts, appreciative "oohs and aahs" are being heard.


If you are in the mood you might wish to give these buttery scrumptious cookie recipes a try.


They are great for the holidays but also for birthdays or anytime the cookie monsters in your house desire. Who knows? That just might be you! :))

      Hi Patricia,

      When I was a child the pecan fingers were my favorite type of cookie baked around Christmas-time each year. They are pretty mixed in with other types of cookies. Hope you enjoy them! Thanks for the pin and share.

      I would love these pecan finger cookies! I usually make cookies for our customers around Christmas, but wasn't able to this year because of Jenna's accident. I am pinning this and may try these for our first cook out this spring!

      More great cookies for Christmas and for gifting! These look so yummy and easy to make. I don't think I know a single person who doesn't like cookies. Great for that hard to buy for person -- especially if that person is a man. Men always seem to love homemade cookies. Only a couple more weeks left . . .

      Sharing these wonderful recipes again!

      Came back to pin this to 'Awesome Hubpages.' Baking cookies the day before Christmas would be a great way to spend family time and have the perfect cookies ready with a glass of milk for Santa later.

      Happy Christmas to you and your family, Peggy W. Thank you for being one of my best friends here on HP!

      The pecan fingers were my favorite cookies out of the ones that my mother made at Christmas time of year when I was a child. Now my favorites are ones more like the ice box cookies and oatmeal ones. The latest ones baked and tested...the almond paste cookies are also delicious. Glad that we don't have to choose just one! :)

      Hi Mary,

      If you are thinking of mailing the cookies to her...the pecan fingers may not be the best ones because they are very fragile compared to most cookies. Ones like the ice box cookies and others would hold up to the rigors of being mailed a bit better. Save the pecan fingers for sometime when she is able to visit you in person. Thanks for the votes + share. I am doing the same...baking cookies to give away as gifts.

      Well, it's that time of year AGAIN! I enjoy making cookies at Christmastime to give to friends and neighbors. I am only limited to the amount of freezer space I have. I have a granddaughter who moved to Oregon and won't be able to come home for Christmas. She asked me to bake her some cookies to make her feel like she is home.

      I like the looks of your Pecan Fingers and I think she will love them.

      I will bookmark this Hub. I voted UP, etc. and will share.

      Hi sweetie,

      If you like a rich buttery type of cookie, then the pecan finger recipe should surely please you. This year I have been making different types of biscotti and the ice box cookies to be given as gifts during the Christmas season. So it will be different from the assortment that I have been regularly giving for many years now. Changing it up a bit! :)

      Omg these cookies look so yummy! I'm just starting to delve into trying different cookie recipes. I'm a pro with the basics like chocolate chip, peanut butter, sugar, white chocolate chip and oatmeal but have yet to try anything creative and fun like what you just shared.

      I'll have to check out your other cookie recipes too! I should add that an aunt of mine gave me a cookie cook book that I have yet to open. That was many moons ago, so thank you for inspiring me to bake more!

      Hi moonlake,

      I know what you mean about the pepper cookies being really good if your recipe is anything like mine. This is the time of year that I usually start thinking of making the different kinds of cookies because many of them freeze well and then can be divided up later into the tins to be given away. When we were kids, my parents would always put out a plate of cookies and a glass of milk for Santa Claus when he would come to visit. There were just crumbs on the plate the next morning. Ha! Thanks for your comment, vote and share.

      I am a sucker for christmas cookies. I love to make them, I love how they look on the table. Most of all, I love to eat them. It's the one time of year, I say yes to sugar, without any guilt, except for my birthday and Easter.:o)

      I have fond memories of baking holiday cookies with my mother and have passed the tradition down to my children. Even though they are grown they still look forward to baking Christmas cookies with me.

      Now I have some great additions. They will be so happy.

      Hi, Peggy - glad I found this one. It's almost time to start baking Christmas cookies and I always want a new recipe. I make something like the pecan fingers, but my recipe calls for (cheaper) walnuts. I like the one with the cherries. The splash of red adds that color that make for a nice variety. All the different kinds of cookies look so pretty together!

      Hi G-Ma Johnson,

      One nice thing about baking homemade scrumptious cookies is how it makes the house smell. Great! Thanks for your comment and Hugs back to you.

      Hi Om,

      Haha! So your "cookie monster" has been awakened, has it? At this time of year that seems to be a regular malady. Take 2 cookies and call your doctor in the morning if your symptoms persist. (Smile) Thanks for your comment.

      Hello Peggy. Interesting piece. I don't cook but I enjoyed looking at your cookie recipe. Judging by the many responses to your article there will be a-lot of people making chocolate chip cookies. However, I will still buy my cookies for the Holidays.

      Hello livelonger,

      Am sure the pecan finger cookies would be equally good with walnuts. Glad that you liked these cookie recipes with pictures. Thanks for your comment.

      Peggy, you know what you just did? You just woke up my inner cookie monster! It had been asleep for a while, but now it's widely awake and extremely hungry. lol

      As usual, my mouth starts watering and my stomach rumbling when I visit your Hubs, Peggy! I *love* pecan finger cookies - we make a variation at home with walnuts, but I like the pecan version, too. Thank you for sharing these recipes and pictures!

      Hi Genna,

      The biggest treat of all besides getting to eat the cookies when we were young kids was getting to lick the spoons from the cookie batter. I see that you shared in that "coveted treat" also. Ha! Thanks for your comment.

      Yummy! My kids love cherries, so we'll have to do the mmmmm cookies, for sure. As a pecan lover myself, I'll make the other batch when no one is around (LOL!)

      I love how the holidays enable me to imbibe in one of my favorite goodies…cookies! My grandmother used to make them and the cookie batter was a coveted treat. Scrumptious recipes, Peggy!

      Hello oceansnsunsets,

      Both of these buttery cookies are easy to make. I generally make the cherry wink cookies and the M_M-M Good Cookies at the same time and chop the maraschino cherries for both during one chopping and measuring session. Saves time and effort for the next cookie recipe. Hope you enjoy these homemade cookies! Thanks for your comments.
