recipe: Jennie's Easy Christmas Cookies - 12/15/16 10:50 AM
 My Mother - in - law's favorite Christmas Cookie! 
 
 
 
Cut Graham Crackers in half and then in half again.
 
Then cut one more time to make petite “Four Square” (Four equal sides)
 
You should now have twice as many squares as the number of cookies you want to make.
 
Spread half with creamy peanut butter and place the others on top.
 
Dip in melted chocolate. (We prefer dark chocolate) and place on wax paper.
 
Top each cookie with a pecan. (Any nut or an M&M will do also.)
 
Store in cool place.
