    commented on Pecan Butterballs.

    So I remembered the story on this cookie from “Martha Stewart’s Christmas” - she had a beau over to the house and her brothers replaced the Tea Cakes that she had baked with Styrofoam and confectioners sugar as a joke. Ho, ho, ho! Must have been a hoot!

    Nothing says “Christmas” like these luscious, nutty, powdery cookies. I don’t even mind the trace of powdered sugar on my red reindeer sweater. YUM!!!!

    Love Nigella! I will give these a try. We just made reindeer “face” cookies using a heart cookie cutter and using twisted pretzels for ears and mini M&Ms for eyes and nose (red -of course).

    The hills are alive...with the smell of fresh baked cookies! I will try this recipe if I can find the wafer. Sounds interesting!

    We’ll enjoy nibbling these by the fire (the DVD that you can put in for a faux crackling fire) while listening to Bette Midler’s “Cool Yule” CD. PARTY!!!!

    These look decadent! I’m a big Pix fan so can’t wait to try these. And I think that my sous chefs - 5&7- will enjoy helping and taste testing!
