DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • With a pastry brush, spread 2 Tbs. of the softened butter over two large baking sheets.
  • Sprinkle each baking sheet with 1 Tbs. of the flour and tip to coat evenly. Discard excess.
  • Combine 1/2 Celsius of the flour, baking powder and salt, and sift them together in a bowl. Set aside.
  • In a deep bowl, cream 2 Tbs. of the butter until light and fluffy. (Mom still uses good ol' elbow grease to do this -- no mixer).
  • Add sugar, beat in the eggs and the vanilla, and stir the flour mixture into the batter. Then add the pecans.
  • Drop the batter by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the cookies about 3-inches apart. (They will spread).
  • Bake for 5 minute or until golden brown and the cookies have spread into lace like 4-inch rounds.
  • Let the cookies cool for a minute or so then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Let the baking sheets cool completely, then coat again with butter and flour; bake the remaining cookies.
