Love toffee? These Pecan Toffee Wedding Cookies are a buttery, nutty Christmas cookie that’s perfect for holiday baking fun.
For most of my childhood and teen years, my family spent Thanksgivings poolside at a condo in Florida. That tradition, which included Thanksgiving dinners in restaurants and some fabulous holiday shopping at a mall I loved, was so special — and a few years ago, we did it again for the first time in years. Part and parcel with those memories are little wedding cookies that my grandmother loved. Every year, when we’d arrive, we’d buy some at the grocery store and eat them while playing games or as a little treat after lunch. Whenever I taste them, I am taken right back to that cozy condo by the sea.
Oddly enough, I didn’t know what they were called or that they could be made at home. To me, they were a special treat found only in that little red package in Fort Lauderdale. As a result, I only ate them in Florida for years and years and years — Until one December day when I bit into a Christmas cookie that my cousin had made and it took me right back.
Best of all, I learned that these cookies of my happy childhood memories are really easy to make too.
When Walmart and Land O’Lakes asked me to create a fun holiday baking recipe, I decided to do a spin on the wedding cookies that I love so much. These Pecan Toffee Wedding Cookies are a toffee-laced version of the classic that begin with a mixture of Land O’Lakes Unsalted Butter and sugar. And of course, there are pecans, flour, vanilla and a egg too …
Quick, easy and simple, these cookies take about 30 minutes to whip up. Then you roll them all in confectioners sugar (gently! These babies are a little fragile when they come out of the oven!) and then cool before digging in.
Psst! There’s also a special contest going on from Land O’Lakes and Walmart. (Please note that this giveaway isn’t hosted by this site.) Here’s the details:
