Pecan Lace Cookies
What You Need:
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 tablespoons plus ˝ cup unsifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. With a pastry brush, spread 2 tablespoons of the softened butter over two large baking sheets. Sprinkle each baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of the flour and tip the pan from side to side to distribute the flour evenly.

    2. Invert the baking sheet and rap it sharply to remove the excess flour. Combine ˝ cup of the flour, the baking powder and the salt, and sift them together into a bowl. Set aside.

    3. In a deep bowl, cream 2 tablespoons of softened butter by beating and mashing it against the sides of the bowl with the. back of a spoon until it is light and fluffy. Add the sugar, beat in the eggs and the vanilla extract, and stir the flour mixture into the batter. Then add the pecans.

    4. Drop the batter by the heaping teaspoonful onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the cookies about 3 inches apart. Bake in the middle of the oven for 5 minutes, or until the cookies have spread into lacelike 4-inch rounds and have turned golden brown.

    5. Let the cookies cool for a minute or so, then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.

    6. Let the baking sheets cool completely, then coat them with the remaining 2 tablespoons of softened butter and 2 tablespoons of flour, and bake the remaining cookies in the preheated oven. In a tightly covered jar or box, the cookies can safely be kept for a week or so.

    To Make: about 30 four-inch round cookies
