Found in "Count Our Blessings" cookbook. In the "olden" days young ladies made these cookies before they went to a dance. When thy returned home, the cookies were ready.

Wow, talk about easy to make, only 3 ingredients!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe and put them in the oven and followed as written, then took them out about 4-5 hours later. I used pecans and feel this is more of a candy/sugared pecans than a cookie, but still tasty and so easy. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Congrats on your 2nd win in the football pool.
