Christmas Rocks

By MaryLou Kolonyi

Everyone has their favorite when it comes to Christmas cookies. I’d like to share mine. About 25 years ago, a lady that I worked for gave me this recipe. It is a very simple and easy to make recipe, with a few basic ingredients, and no leavening, other than eggs. The cookies are not overly sweet and are sure to satisfy a nut lover.

Chopped dates could be substituted for the raisins. Someday, I’d like to try making them with dried cranberries and pecans. Please let me know, if you try anything new!

Note…Do not try to roughly chop your nuts with your dough blender, unless you wish to have bent hooks!
