15 Days and Counting
Can you believe it - -only 15 days left until all the excitement is over! I know - I've been crowing about the fact that all my Holiday pressies have been bought or made and wrapped up ready to go. And now (thanks to a 3am start time on Sunday) all my cookies and treats are done and in containers ready to be shipped off or presented in person. Since I'm in the cookie mood - thought I'd share a favorite with you all.
Our family has always LOVED these cookies. These finger-sized pieces of powered sugar delights are easy to make with few ingredients and one of our family staples. At least until I can master the Hungarian Butterhorns Aunt Rosie used to always make - just can't get them quite right! Anyhow - here's a recipe for you to try.
1 cup butter
¼ cup powdered sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tblspn water
2 cups flour
2 cups ground pecans
Heat oven to 350
Make finger shapes by taking 1 large tsp of dough and rolling it into an oblong in the palms of your hands. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. May be placed close together as cookies do not raise.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until slightly brown on edges
Immediately roll warm cookies in powdered sugar and place on wire rack to cool
Makes 5-8 dozen depending on size.
Enjoy -- and yes Diane - I made enough for you! Happy Holidays everyone!
