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.
Easy for you to say there NOD, we diabetics have had enough of the sweets we cannot have! Just kidding. Hope you have a great Christmas and an icrease in the comp for all.
