Personal Notes:
Mom made this one at Christmas and would leave half without nuts for those that preferred it that way. I make it half and half still as I was one that does not care for nuts in cookies or candies. The smell of brown sugar and butter baking during the holidays is very comforting to me as it reminds me of how I remember the kitchen smelling during December while growing up. I loved to help bake during this time and listen to Christmas carols with mom and singing the Little Drummer Boy.
