Pecan Delight

Light and buttery, oh so good.


  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • Ad
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Cream margarine, shortening and sugar until fluffy and sugar dissolves.

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix slowly into creamed mixture. Mix in pecans. Cover and refrigerate for easier handling.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls, Arrange on cookie sheet and bake 11 to 14 minutes or until done at 350 degrees F. Do not over cook.

I sometimes omit the pecans and roll in cinnamon sugar, or add coconut to part of the dough for a change. Bake the same.
