Ingredients

How to Make Pecan Ice Box Cookies

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