Spry Christmas Cookie Recipe

A Christmas cookie recipe from a wartime Spry pure vegetable shortening recipe booklet, Good Cooking Made Easy (1942, 48 pages):


Don't wait til Christmas to make these prize-winners! Grand with black walnuts too.

3/4 cup Spry
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla
2 cups sifted flour
1 cup pecans, chopped

Blend Spry, butter, salt, sugar, and vanilla. Add flour and pecans. Drop by tablespoons on Sprycoated cookie sheets. Bake in slow oven (325 degrees) 25 minutes. Cool. Roll in confectioners' sugar.

Makes 40 cookies.

If preferred, the dough may be shaped into small balls or finger-shaped rolls instead of being dropped from a spoon.
