A good friend of mine in Houston gave me this recipe. I have two very large Pecan trees in my backyard, I keep this recipe handy.

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2
eggs
4 c
sifted plain flour
1 1/2 tsp
soda
1/2 lb
butter melted
1 lb
brown sugar
3/4 c
sugar
1/4 c
crisco shortening
3 c
pecans finely chopped
1 Tbsp
vanilla

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream sugars, butter and Crisco together. Add eggs and beat. Mix in other ingredients. Add pecans and stir. Roll into logs on floured cutting board.
2
Mixture makes 5 logs about 1 1/2 inch diameter. Refrigerate overnight in covered plastic container or plastic wrap. I always bake a few dozen and freeze the rest. Just roll into a log, freeze and slice as needed.
3
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. It does not take long for them to cook and brown.

Note: For Christmas you can add Red or Green sugar sprinkles to top before baking.
