Straight out of Aunt Marcia’s archives! Country Woman magazine printed Carla Hodenfield of North Dakota recipe but this clipping wasn’t dated. Her Cranberry Nut Cookies have been a Christmas classic for our family forever. My recipe is only slightly modified from Carla’s as I prefer to use the Kitchenaid to make life easier. Replace the cranberries with mincemeat and make an alternative to traditional mince pies.
