There’s nothing more representative of Christmas to me than Italian Christmas Cookies!
Every Christmas my family gets together and makes a large Italian feast, complete with homemade pasta, tiramisu, and, of course, Christmas Cookies.
The following Christmas cookies are staples for our holiday meal! If you want some delicious holiday desserts, make sure to try these ones out.

Pecan Snowball Cookies
This cookie recipe is made with pecans and exhibits an almost shortbread-like texture that we LOVE. My grandmother calls them Pecan Butterballs, but I’ve also heard them called Pecan Sandies, Pecan Snowball Cookies, or Mexican Wedding Cookies as well.
Walnut Cookies, or Walnut Roll-Up Cookies, as we call them in my house are a delicious way to bring the holiday spirit to your home! The dough is made with yeast, so it rises a bit and is then stuffed with a chopped walnut filling that will leave your taste buds singing.
