Butter Cookies

Still haven't quite figured out this blog thing... so much like life, just when your cruisin along... whoops what was that? I have lost into a black hole several of my blogs, so I just start over.
Here is my third attempt to give you one of my favorite cookie recipes. I make this cookie at Christmas, but whose to say it can't be made today.
The recipe comes from my dear friend Johnice. Her grandmother Ruth, who lived to be 100 years old passed the recipe down the family line and it came to me. So great art, music and cookies are timeless.
Thanks Ruth... thanks Johnice and thanks me!

1#Butter ( yes 1 # butter I said they were yummy didn't I)
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
1 Egg
4 Cups sifted flour
1 tsp vanilla
Cream butter and sugar-add egg- mix- add vanilla
drop by teaspoon ( heaping) ( don't you love that word heaping) on ungreased cookie sheet
press with fork and add a pecan to center of each cookie
Bake 350 for 15 min. When edges are brown cookies are done, so watch them sometimes they are finished in 10 or 12 min.
Eat, share, love


  1. Thanks Peggy, I have made these before and lost the recipe.... this sounds very much like the one I had! Yummm.

  2. I would like to share an easy and yummy cookie recipe!

    1. Buy refrigerated cookie dough.
    2. Let JoAnn put it in oven.
    3. Let JoAnn take it out.


  3. shame shame on you Luella ( you left out the part, drink a cocktail while cookies are baking)

  4. Well, you know I'm not too good with recipes! I always leave out a step!!!

  5. Now, if I could just get JoAnn to pick up the cookie dough, I'd have it made!!!
