Southern sour cream pecan cookies are good anytime and wonderful for the holidays.
- 1/2 cup oil I use Canola
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup pecan pieces
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the oil, eggs, sugar, vanilla and sour cream. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and soda and mix well with a large spoon. Fold in pecans. In a smaller bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon for the topping. Batter will look like cake batter.
Drop by tablespoon full onto a very lightly sprayed cookie sheet. Sprinkle a pinch of the sugar and cinnamon topping on each cookie. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 15 to 20 minutes. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen depending on the size you make the cookies.
