Bid Bay Cookie recipe
1 cup unsalted butter
cup sifted confectioners sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 (6-ounce) packaged milk chocolate chips
cup finely chopped pecans
Using an electric mixer, mix cream butter
and confectioners sugar until fluffy. Add Vanilla, Gradually add flour. Mix well. Shape dough into sticks about 2 - ½ inches
long, ½ inch wide and ½ inch deep (thick). Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten three-fourth of each cookie length-wise
with fork to ¼ inch thickness, leaving the patter of the fork lines in the dough.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven 10 to
12 minutes, or until done. Remove to wire racks to cool.
Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe
bowl and microwave on high (100 percent) power 45 to 60 seconds, or until melted. You can also melt in top of double boiler
or in a heavy-bottomed pan. Put chopped pecans in a small cup or bowl.
Dip plain end of each cookie in chocolate
mixture; dip into chopped pecans. Place on waxed paper.
These cookies freeze well.
Yield: 3 to 4 dozen cookies
Note: Dough might appear slightly dry when
mixing; I use my hands to knead in the last ½ cup of flour.
Wonderfully tender, melt-in-you-mouth cookies.
Beautiful on a cookie try. My Family loves them!
