NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — It’s the most delicious time of the year, and these New Orleans nuns have just the right recipe for a sacred tradition.

Since 1940, Sisters of the Holy Family pray every morning as the sun rises. For Sister Geneva James, the baker-in-chief this holiday season, that means praying for Christmas cookies.

The delectable bites are potato-chip-thin, filled with pecans — a recipe more than 80 year in the making that’s good enough to make you want to eat the entire tin.

For $14 a tin, you can have your cookies and eat them too as the profits made will go to the mission. To place your order, give Sisters of the Holy Family a call.
