December 12

Hey there Internets!

Shakespeare said something like “a rose by any other name would still smell as sweet”.

This is also true for the lowly Pecan Sandy.

Or Russian Tea cake.



Or Snowball.

This past month , Oh Nuts contacted me and asked if I’d review some of their products.

Who wouldn’t jump at that chance.

So I perused their web site and chose Spiced Pecans and something else I will talk about tomorrow.

I had considered making a pecan pie with them, but then I went to the parents house and mom had had some Mexican Wedding Cookies Russinan Tea Cakes Pecan Sandies.   And I couldn’t get it out of my head that they would be absolutely fabulous with spiced pecans in them.

And Internet I was right.

I didn’t think these cookies could get any better, but I was wrong.

Why don’t you go check out Oh Nuts…they have more than nuts there.


But you know what made them even sweeter?
