Recipe by Sherrie-pie

I've just read Murder on a Bad Hair Day by Anne George. Patricia Ann spent a lot of time making cookies. This sounds like the recipe. I hope it is as I'm intrigued. I'm going to make it as soon as I find out how much a quart of pecans is. From recipegoldmine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter, add sugar, then beaten egg yolks. Sprinkle some of the flour over the fruit and pecans. Add spices and salt to remaining flour.
  2. Combine butter, fruit and flour mixtures. Add vanilla extract and baking soda.
  3. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold together butter/flour mixture. Drop scant teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350°F for 10 - 15 minutes. Batter may be prepared several weeks ahead. Freezes well before and after baking.
