Recipe of the Week
Alice Brantley Yeager
1/2 lb. butter or shortening
4 heaping Tbsp. powdered sugar
2 cups flour
pinch of salt
2 tsp. vanilla mixed with 1 Tbsp. water
2 cups chopped pecans
Cream butter and sugar together until smooth. Mix in flour and salt and add vanilla. Add pecans and stir until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Hand roll bits of dough into date size pieces and place about 1/2 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 250°, about 50-55 minutes or until very lightly browned. When cookies have cooled, roll them in powdered sugar.
This should make about 55-60 pecan twerps.
