    sifted plain flour

How to Make Pecan Ice Box Cookies


  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.
