Cookie Recipe Exchange

Okay, while I wait to find out how in the world to download the songs I want to put on here, here's a sweet post. Literally! Katy Lin joined a cookie recipe exchange going on over at Jan and Toms Place, so I thought I'd join in, too. I love me some Christmas cookies. If you go to the exchange post, her Date Rolls recipe looks very much like my Date Balls recipe, and let me tell you, they are SOOOOO good! They are by far my favorite thing to make at Christmas. Anyway, click the little Gingerbread Man below to check out all the other recipes.


Here's my recipe for your taste bud pleasure.

Praline Graham Squares (my 2nd favorite thing to make at Christmas!)

1 sleeve graham crackers
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spread crackers evenly (sides touching) in single layer on a lightly greased 15 x 10 x 1 inch pan (jelly roll pan). Melt butter in a 2 quart sauce pan over medium heat, adding sugar and pecans when almost melted. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Spread evenly over graham crackers. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool completely. Cut and serve.

These are SO easy. But let me say here, be careful. They are VERY addictive! One is just not enough. Or two. I'll just stop there so you'll think I have at least some self control.
