Recipe of the Month – Vanilla Slice-and-Bake Cookies

This is an easy cookie recipe. Typically when I make these they are eaten in the first 24 hours. I choose this picture of the cookies as their layout makes the shape of Mickey Mouse. (Disney fans will understand this.)


1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened

1 cup sugar

1 egg

2 t. vanilla extract

1 3/4 cups flour

1/2 t. baking soda

1/4 t. salt

1/2 cup chopped pecans


Cream butter, gradually add sugar, beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer. Add egg and vanilla, beat well. Combine flour, soda and salt; add to creamed mixture, beating well. Stir in pecans. Shape dough into 2 rolls (about 10 inches long). Wrap in wax paper and chill for at least 2 hours.

Unwrap rolls and cut into 1/4″ slices. (Optional – dip each cookie in cinnamon sugar – see below.) Place slices on cookie sheets sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool for 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Cinnamon sugar – mix 1/4 cups sugar with 1-2 t. cinnamon.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies

Note: Dough can be frozen for up to 3 months. Slice dough while frozen and bake as directed.
