Pound Cake Cookies

(From Harvey’s Best Cookbook)

Ingredients

2 sticks butter (no substitute)

1 cup sugar

2 egg yolks

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (We used a bit of almond extract too.)

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

½ cup chopped pecans (optional – We used them – good. I think coconut would work well, too.)

Directions

Cream butter and sugar.

Add egg yolks.

Stir in vanilla and flour.

Roll in balls and place on cookie sheet.

Flatten with a fork to about 1 ½ inches in diameter.

Bake in a 350 degree oven until edges are brown, about 10 minutes.

 

The recipe said the yield was 5 ½ dozen cookies. We only got 4 dozen.  This was so easy and the ingredients are the things we always have on hand. It’s a great little buttery cookie that could be a base for adding coconut or chocolate chips and on and on . . . .

Enjoy!
