Baking Day
I was going to do industrial scale baking today, but I've decided to space things out and bake over the next few nights so things will be fresher. Today I'm making what we call Cocoons. This recipe was from Bea Bea. I don't have enough vanilla to complete it so I'm blogging while I wait for M to come home for lunch and bring me more vanilla. Here's the recipe:


2 sticks butter
3 tbsp. powdered sugar
1 c. pecans
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tbsp. vanilla

Cream sugar and butter. Add vanilla. Add sifted flour gradually. Add pinch of salt, add nuts. Roll into cocoon shaped cookies. Bake 20 minutes in 325 degree oven. Shake hot cookies in bag of powdered sugar.
