My Aunt Jody has made the cookies every year for Christmas since before I can remember, and they have always been my favorite. She always makes extra so there will be plenty for me to take home and enjoy after the festivities are over. Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without them. Beware, they do turn everyone’s mouth dark green so it is impossible to sneak one and go unnoticed!
