Holiday Foodways in North Carolina

Chunky Brazil Nut and Coconut Cookies
On Christmas morning in Harnet County, North Carolina circa 1910, Erwin Stephens and his brother remember waking up and rushing to the living room to find out what had been stuffed in their Christmas stockings. They would fine apples, oranges, candy canes, walnuts, Brazil nuts. Baking cookies with your children this holiday is a great way of introducing them to the joys of producing food for others and it's a terrific bonding time. Did you grow up baking cookies with a parent for Christmas? Please share your story and recipes.
