~~ 2009 Cookie Exchange ~~

{pecan snickerdoodles}
recipe from the 2008 BHG Holiday Cookies magazine

2 & 1/2 cup self raising flour
250g butter
1 & 1/2 cups caster sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
2 eggs
cinnamon sugar for dredging
[the original recipe is American, and calls for all-purpose flour, 2tsp cream of tartar and 1tsp baking powder. as we have self-raising flour in Australia, I just went ahead and used that]

- cream butter and sugar
- add eggs, beat well
- add dry ingredients (except cinnamon sugar) mix to dough
- roll into balls with wet hands, coat in cinnamon sugar
- bake 12min, 180degrees

I find rolling the balls with wet hands gives the sugar a nice crisp coating when fresh from the oven. The biscuits are nice and simple, not too much flavour, which makes them pleasant to eat (and sometimes eat too many ~lol~) I chopped my nuts small enough for the toddlers to eat, one likes the biscuits, the other doesn't, but they are a hit with the rest of the family.
