If you’re from the South, pecan meringues are probably a cookie you grew up eating at every holiday party. My grandma used to make the best pecan meringues but The Birmingham Candy Company has her beat. Sorry grandma!

Fluffy sweet meringue topped with a whole pecan makes for a great small Christmas-themed pick-me-up. Warning: eating one quickly turns into eating a dozen.

5. Gingerbread Cookies—Crestline Bagel Company
