Recipe--Ginger Pecan Cookies



GINGER PECAN COOKIES


1 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar

Cream together with a mixer.

Beat in 1 egg.  (Opt: add ¼ c. molasses)

Stir together:
            2 ½ c. flour
            2 t. baking soda
            1 t. ginger
            1 t. cinnamon
            ½ t. salt

Add flour mix to first mixture.

Add 1 t. vanilla.
Add 1 c. chopped pecans at end.

Chill in fridge.  (I didn't do this--I couldn't wait!)  J
Form into balls to bake.
Roll in white sugar and press flat.  Put them on a greased baking sheet.

Bake at 350°F. for 10-12 minutes.



OR
Put a roll of dough on a sheet of waxed paper, wrap, twist ends and freeze.
When ready to bake, unwrap, slice and place on a greased cookie sheet.

Don’t overbake.  Pull out when the mark made by touching the top with your finger remains firm, not squishy.

Cool on a rack and store in a tin.
Enjoy!

XOXO,
Lucky Dog

    1. Oh, I hope you do. And you can tailor it to suit your own tastes. The best part is, they really taste *homemade*. :)
