Pecan Crescent Cookies: One of my families favorite holiday cookies. Nothing fancy just buttery goodness.
When putting together my holiday cookie trays I always make sure to include these Pecan Crescent Cookies. With all the sweets it’s nice to have something on the tray that is melt in your mouth good by not too sweet. Perfect with a cup of coffee or tea!
