Welcome to Christmas Cookies Week! I cannot BELIEVE it’s only 46 days until Christmas! Except this year I think we’ve earned it.

What a whirlwind of a year we’ve had, which has made diving into Christmas already, a necessity for my heart and soul.

Yes, we’ve put our decorations up. Yes I’m already listening to Christmas music and yes my house smells like holiday baking most weekends now.

I know it’s early. I get it. But it’s what my soul need this year.

A big old shout out and a huge thank you to our sponsors for Christmas Cookies week. Without them, these cookies I have whipped up for this week would not be possible.

We are huge snickerdoodle fans around here.

While I think the recipe we use for Snickerdoodles is one of the best I’ve ever had, I knew that some tweaking might be fun too.

So we set out to use our favorite recipe but add a delicious nutty twist. It’s light, subtle but adds SO much flavor! 

These are a winner!

  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup Pecan Meal also sometimes called pecan flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 ⅓ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

For Topping

  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients and set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, pecan meal, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs and beat until well combined.
  • Add the flour mixture, a little at a time to the butter mixture until combined.
  • Form even balls approximately 1-inch with the dough and roll in cinnamon sugar topping mixture.
  • Place evenly on non-stick cookie sheet (we love Anolon!) about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes. The secret to keeping them soft and moist is to make sure you don’t overcook them.
  • Allow them to cool just slightly on baking sheet. About 5 minutes.
  • Transfer to wire rack to cool completely and then store in air tight container for about 1 week.
