So, I didn't get around to making her favorite cookies (my plan for her main Easter gift) until dawn time on Sunday. With her in the next room cuddling under her favorite, warm coverlet, I made these Mexican Wedding Cake Cookies and tinned them up to go with the felted eggs I made during the blizzards, and a little Jim Shore carved ducklet. My son's basket was filled with Paleo Bars, Beef Jerky, one little Reese's egg, and a video game. Mom gave me an Easter tee shirt (early) and a pretty pink bejeweled wind chime angel.
(You can put little Hershey's Kisses inside the ball for the cookies shown here. I didn't because Mom likes the pecan flavor better than chocolate! -- Betty Crocker recipe and photo. )
