Cookie Tin With Homemade Cookies

My Great Aunt is 93 years old and she lives in the Southwest. This summer I bought a beautiful Christmas tin at a garage sale for only 50 cents. Then I baked her some Christmas cookies, and sealed the top of the tin with plastic wrap.

I have also found beautiful Christmas tins at garage sales. Plan on making homemade cookies as well and giving them as gifts to coworkers. Your cookies look yummy. Have a Merry Christmas.

Hi Marge, wow that's a great gift you made your Great Aunt and who wouldn't love to get a pretty tin full of yummy looking cookies....I know I would!

Someone 93 probably doesn't need that much but probably still enjoys good food so that's a perfect gift!

I'm wondering what the round white cookies in the tin are called and if you'd share the recipe? I've been wanting a recipe for those because they are Delicious...but I have no idea what you call them.

I have also made gifts for the family this year. I made some homemade fudge and homemade beef jerky for my in laws. I also found the tins at garage sales and the goodwill. The most expensive part of the whole gift was the shipping!!

I have always called those round balls by the name of Russian Teacakes but they are also known as Mexican Wedding Cakes or Pecan Sandies. I find you can use pretty much any chopped nut in them (maybe not peanuts). Pretty much every recipe book has a recipe for one of those names.

The Walnut Balls recipe link above looks pretty much like the one I use. They are dense, like balls of shortcake and have no eggs or other leavening. My very favorite Christmas cookie.

This is a wonderful suggestion. I also make various homemade gifts, from toiletries to Christmas decorations to bake goods. I have also made hot chocolate mixes or various beverages mixes or ingredients with recipes or a mini homemade cookbook. You can also find great tins at JoAnn Fabrics when they have 70% or more off. Many are less than a dollar.
