These refrigerator cookies, so called because the dough is chilled before being baked, are made with brown sugar, butter, and pecans. This is a tasty and truly old-fashioned, icebox cookie recipe.
- 1/2 cup butter (softened)
- 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 Egg (beaten)
- 1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup pecans (finely chopped)
- With electric mixer at high speed, cream butter, sugar, and vanilla until light. Stir in beaten egg; blend well.
- Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into creamed mixture. Fold in the chopped pecans. Shape into a roll about 2 inches in diameter; wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
- Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut roll into thin slices about 1/8-inch thick and place on ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 8 to 10 minutes.
