What could be better than a crumbly cookie covered in powdered sugar?? Yeah exactly. It’s pretty high on the list. These cookies are prefect for the holidays. They are sweet, filled with nuts and they make a big mess. Just like being with your family for Christmas dinner! Ha! See what I did there??

Anyways. Try these cookies out, you and your nutty family will love them!
