So glad you could stop by today,with the holidays fast approaching, it's time to get out those favorite recipes & cookies just seem to be one of those things,the days have long gone sine my niece & me made cookies every holiday that rolled around, for she is grown into a beautiful young mother now, geesh! did I just admit how old I was LOL LOL I now carry on the tradition with my granddaughters, geesh! I did it again, LOL

be sure to visit http://blessedwithgrace.blogspot.com/ for more great recipes

the picture was taken from my favorite cookie cookbook called COOKIES! a cookie lovers collection,if you don't have this one I highly recommend it


1 1/2c plus 2 tbsp. sugar divided

1c.butter(1 stick) softened

2 eggs

2 3/4c.flour(all purpose)

2 tsp. cream of tarter

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp.cinnamon

pecan halves

***** I never put the salt in my cookies, just don't like the taste, if a recipe calls for baking powder I opt the flour for self rising after all that's what the B.P. is for lol*****

combine the 1 & 1/2c suagr, butter & eggs, beat on med speed

**I beat mine by hand there is enough messed up at this point LOL

add flour,cream of tarter,B.P.,soda,nutmeg,salt, beat till soft dough forms

cover with plastic wrap & chill for 2 hrs or till firm

***LOL I've not noticed that part till now, I've never chilled mine & they turn out fine****

heat oven to 375

in small bowl combine cinnamon & remaining 2 tbsp.sugar

shape dough into balls bout 1"

roll balls in cinnamon mix, place 2'' apart on ungreased cookie sheet

press pecan halves into center

bake 10-12 min or till light golden brown

cool about a min. before removing from cookie sheet

****removing one immediately with a glass of cold milk is acceptable LOL ****
