Cinnamon Butter Cookie Recipe

There is something about drop cookies that I love. Since I was a child around 11 years old, I had my first cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens. Red, white checkerboard hard copy. The pages are dirty and worn now and did I ever get my use of it. I made just about everything in that book. This is an adapted recipe from there. They used shortening instead of butter in their recipe. I find that shortening came out more like shortbread and biscuit tasting. I really love this recipe and it's so easy. Drop the dough on the cookie sheet and bake, cool then dust with powdered sugar!

Cinnamon Butter Cookie Recipe

1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup powdered sugar (more for the tops)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
2 sticks butter ( 1 cup) softened

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream in a large bowl softened butter with sugars.
Add the salt, vanilla, cinnamon and flour and beat till well blended Stir in the pecans.  Drop teaspoonful of the cookie dough  on a cookie sheet  lined with parchment paper around two inches apart. Bake at 350 for around 12 minutes or until edges start to brown. Cool around 10 minutes and sprinkle/dust with powdered sugar.
