The beginning of fall always makes me think of pecans...ok, I'm sure that sounds a little odd so bear with me. When I was little, there was a pecan grove on my grandfather's farm. In the fall, the cousins would wander through and pick up the pecans that had fallen on the ground. We would take ours home and my father would watch football while cracking the pecan shells and cleaning the nuts, and I would help. (I can honestly say that the hours I spent cleaning pecans with Daddy, listening to whatever game was on, comprised the sum total of my football knowledge until well into adulthood...)
I had an ulterior motive in helping clean those pecans. You see, Daddy taught me to bake and his favorite cookie (and mine), was our Cinnamon Pecan cookie, which Dad always called "The Goodest Cookie in the World!" (I know "Goodest" isn't a real word but that's a blog post for another day.)
It turns out that September 21 is National Pecan Cookie Day, and in honor of the National Day for my favorite cookie, we are sharing the love and will be giving away a Grey Ghost Bakery Gift Box! The box will contain a bag of our Lemon Sugar Cookies, Chocolate Espresso Cookies, and of course, Cinnamon Pecan Cookies.
