Cookies with Pecans Recipe

My family prefers these pecan cookies to any store-bought variety. Self-rising flour makes them a little different from most cookie recipes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:21 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually add flour and mix well. Stir in pecans.
  • 2. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 9-11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for 1-2 minutes before removing to wire racks. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.
