Both my grandma and Brent's used to make SO many types of awesome cookies. Some of my favorites are:
I usually make those during the holidays. Which is right around the corner!
But they both used to make ordinary everyday ice box cookies too. So did my mom. I hadn't made any in quite a while, so I dug out this favorite recipe.
I like the crispy texture, and the sweet brown sugar flavor. This time I added chopped pecans. I slice them pretty thin, and they make a TON. I usually make just half a batch, and I still get quite a few.
But cookies usually don't last long around here!
