These Iced Cranberry Pecan Cookies are one of my most favorite cookies. I just love the Fall and I can’t help myself, I just have to bake them for our guests at Brenham House! Sometimes I dust them with Powdered sugar, but my favorite is to use lemons icing on them! Yes, I said, “lemon”.
1 1/4 c. sugar, 2 sticks of softened butter, 3 egg yolks, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 1/2 c. flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. cream of tarter, 1c. cranberries, 1c. pecans chopped finely
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixer cream together the sugar, butter, egg yolks, and vanilla. In a bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and cream of tarter. Slowly add to the wet ingredients. Stir in the cranberries and pecans. Scoop out on a pan with parchment paper and do not flatten. Bake for about 10 minutes until lightly brown on the edges. Cool and dust with powdered sugar or ice with your favorite icing. Makes about 4 dozen.
