These are yummy cookies, and taste just as good if not better when you make them yourself at home!

  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tarter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup Finely Chopped Pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Measure flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda together and set aside. Beat vegetable shortening and sugars together until fluffy. Add vanilla, salt, and egg to sugars and butter mixture beat until smooth. Add flour, baking soda, and cream of tarter to sugar and shortening mixture about a third at time.

    I am making this right now, and the dough is the consistency of pie dough, before adding any liquid…have no clue what do do, but maybe add a little water???

    • Stephanie Manley

      Yes, this dough should be a dry pie dough like dough. I hope these cookies turned out well for you.

    Thank you for the recipes! It allows me to make the food my family loves for less $$$ and with better ingredients. I can’t believe some of these manufacturers still use hydrogenated oils, MSG, and ingredients that do not sound like food and are not found in most home kitchens. Thanks, again!

    I was making the cookies and was following the directions and noticed it said butter in directions but didn’t have butter in the ingredients…am I missing something?

  • Carol Hall

    Oh yeah, try to beat the poor keebler elfs out of a few bucks. They can’t pay the mortgage on there tree house and will get evicted.

    I don’t know what went wrong w/my cookies, but they came out crumbly :'(. I followed the recipe to the letter and it didn’t form into a dough.

      Your flour may have been what went wrong. Did you know that when you measure flour you can get a wide variety of results? Here is a video that may help. it sounds like there was extra flour in the recipe.

    Absolutely FABulous!! Great recipe!

    • Carrie

      Instead of 1 3/4 cup flour I added 1 cup flour and 1/2 cup cornstarch for a crisper cookie…they were awesome! Makes a great cheesecake crust too!
