2012 cookie swap: Annie's Chinese chews

By: Style At Home

This recipe came from my paternal grandmother. Even though she died several years before I was born, this recipe of Chinese Chews, has been a family tradition each and every Christmas that I can ever remember. Even though I never had the chance to meet her, I feel that she has been with us every Christmas by handing down her recipe to our family. I serve them on the same China, Indian Tree, that she too, served them on. I hope that everyone will enjoy them as much as we do!
