Nostalgic Bites

I hosted book club last week, and while the hostess is the one who looks after beverages, while everyone else brings snacks (yes, EVERYONE else brings snacks; one more reason book club night is one of the best nights of the month!), I didn't want to pass up the opportunity to make some cookies I had pulled from the recipe book Mom made me.

So Thursday was a baking day, and I made my Grandma's Butter Cookies, and Auntie Joan's Pecan Puffs.  Mmmm.  So good.  I think I may have gained a few pounds since then.  And the fact that they remind me of my childhood is just as good, I think. That part is thankfully calorie free.
