I usually go a little crazy baking Christmas cookies at this time of year. I love making a ton of cookies to share with co-workers, friends, and family. It’s definitely one of my happiest holiday traditions.

Usually, I bake a mix of tried-and-true family recipes, along with a few new cookies. I love trying new recipes, but this year my kitchen is too small for a marathon baking session. So, I’m focusing on my all-time favorites, including Nona’s Pecan Finger Cookies.
