CREAM CHEESE LEMON/PECAN COOKIES – Reposted

This recipe came from the back of a C&H Sugar box in the 50’s.  My mother loved pecans, so she made these cookies when she was in the mood for them!

3/4 cup (l-l/2 sticks) butter or margarine

3 oz cream cheese

1 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

2 cups cake flour

1 cup finely chopped pecans

powdered sugar in shallow dish

Cream together butter and cream cheese (both at room temp).  Gradually add sugar and beat hard.  Stir in vanilla, lemon juice and peel.  Add flour, mixing well.  Stir in pecans.  Push small amount from a teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 300 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until delicately browned.  While hot, roll in powdered sugar.  Makes about 4 dozen small, rich cookies.

Enjoy!
