North Carolina Pecan Puffs

It’s Christmas once again and that draws me to the kitchen. I love cooking deserts so it’s only natural that I want you Vets to be sure you get your daily supply of butter, too. It’s one of the five major food groups that helps build happier bodies 12 different ways. So no Veteran worth his or her salt would choose rationally to go without eight or nine of these little things every day.

Pecan Puffs (North Carolina 1962)  

Makes about thirty                                                           Oven 300

1/2 cup butter

Add and blend until creamy

2 tsbp. sugar

Add 1 tsp. vanilla

Measure, then grind in a nut grinder

1 cup pecan halves

Sift, then measure

1 cup cake flour

Add the flour into the butter and then mix in the nuts. Roll the dough into one inch balls and place one inch apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake in a slow 300 oven for 40 minutes.

Roll in confectioner’s sugar while they are red hot. Roll a second time when cooled.

I make 4 recipes at once and put them in cookie tins to give to the grandchildren and the neighbors. These are almost better than my pecan pie-almost. Please make some for Santa. I’m told they are his favorite.
