I couldn’t decide on what  cookie recipe to share so I chose a fairly easy recipe to make. This recipe was shared by a former co-worker named Melissa.  It contains brandy but you could substitute kahlua (sp?) or leave out the alcohol and just use vanilla extract. I don’t really know the name of the cookie but it makes a nice holiday cookie.

  • 1/2 lb. butter
  • 1 tbsp. brandy
  • 3/4 cup sugar

Whip above ingredients until fluffy. Then add

  •  2 cups flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Mix well unti blended. Chill for 1 hour.

Shape into balls completely covering a Hershey’s Kiss.

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 12 minutes at 375 degrees. 

Cool completely. Sprinkle or roll in powdered sugar.  Enjoy!
