2015's Xmas cookies

This year's cookies are pretty much the same as last year's--windmills, pandan-flavored spritz from Betty Crocker, cinnamon roll cookies, and the best-ever pfeffernüsse from The Spice Cookbook. I intended to make some halvah cookies too, but couldn't find any halvah on such short notice (I had to do all my baking on the 23rd). I was resigned to only making four kinds of cookies when I noticed, on the page right next to the pfeffernüsse recipe, spiced pecanettes! They're just like Mexican wedding cookies with pecans for the nuts and a very subtle addition of spice. They were a hit with Annie and Rachael, and pretty quick and easy to make.
