My mother-in-law always set a beautiful table at the holidays. She would place a small favor at each place setting. They were usually handmade, filled with treats and also served as a place card with our names on them. I thought it was so sweet and have continued the tradition through the years. This year I decided to try the Walnut Acorn Cookie recipe that I’ve seen floating around on the web. The recipe is basically a walnut shortbread. You shape the cookie dough, bake it, and then dip the tops in chocolate and finely chopped walnuts or sprinkles.
I thought they were easy to make. They look super cute and taste delicious. One recipe makes about 4 dozen cookies. I put 6 cookies in each cellophane bag and tied it off with a ribbon and tag.
I love sending guests home with a treat.
