One summer I bought a container of candied pecans at Costco. They were so good, and so addicting, that I ate the entire two pounds of nuts in 3 days.
We’re hosting a Christmas party soon, and I wanted to come up with a snack that was not only healthier than the standard bag of potato chips, but something that was also holiday-ish and would totally steal the show.
Enter homemade candied pecans.
Decorating sugar cookies at Christmas wasn’t a tradition in my family growing up.
My step-mom though, started this tradition with my own kids when they were barely old enough to walk.
My step-mom now lives with Jesus, so it’s up to me to carry on her tradition of decorating cookies at the holidays with the kids.
I know her sugar cookie recipe wasn’t the healthiest, so I set out to create a healthy sugar cookie that I won’t feel guilty for making or letting my kids (or myself!) eat all year long.
