I tried these cookies because my husband likes pound cakes, but I didn't want to do the whole cake. I did a search for pound cake cookies and found this one on the My husband loved them. Both of us almost ate the 1st batch. Yummy...


  1. Cream butter and sugar well. Beat the egg and add to the creamed mixture, along with the vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour. Drop the dough by the teaspoon, about an inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets (or lined with baking parchment). Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Let cookies rest on the baking sheet briefly, then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store in a covered container.

My friend brought these to a Memorial Day get together and EVERYONE wanted the recipe! They were just like my favorite part of a pound cake: the top crusty part! I will be making these soon. Like later today! I love the simplicity of them.
