On the third day of Christmas Young Wifey shared with me: Nanny’s Florida’s pecan sugar cookies, shortbread squares, and chippers recipes.
1 c. butter, 1 3/4 c. confectioners’ sugar, 1 egg, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/4 tsp. almond extract, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. cream of tartar, 1 c. chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 400°F. Cream together butter and sugar, and beat until fluffy. Blend in eggs and extracts. Mix the dry ingredients together and add to wet ingredients. Mix throughly. Stir in pecans. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until barely colored. Allow to cook slightly before moving them to a cooling rack.
