From Mary Ann Johnson, via our Aunt Adelia (both from Lindsborg, KS) comes this excellent recipe for Swedish Pecan Cookies. A big hit when first served at a family gathering in October, it’s now been reported by relatives across the country that they are equally good when baked for the holiday season!
1 C butter
1 C sugar
1 Tbs Karo syrup
1/2 C pecan meal *
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 C flour
Cream butter and sugar, then add syrup, pecan meal, soda, flour and salt. Form into small balls and flatten with glass or fork. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are light brown.
*pecan meal may be made by grinding pecans in food processor or blender
