Pecan Confections

These are quick and easy. They are delightful…and a perfect way to look like you were paying attention when you signed up to bring a cookie to the church social hour or the PTA coffee. They will be comforting…but a wee bit different… a wee bit trendy…they are so retro they are back. Parchment paper or waxed paper will make this easier, but don’t worry if you don’t have any on hand.

Pecan Confections

Beat 1 egg white to a stiff froth. Add gradually 1 cup brown sugar mixed with 1 tablespoon flour and 1/8 tsp salt. Fold in 1 cup chopped pecans. Drop by teaspoons on greased cookie sheet. Bake in slow oven, 300 F., for 15 min. Cool a little before removing from cookie sheet. Makes 2 dozen.


  1. your recipe card picture reminds me of many I inherited from my mom- all are typed and look very similar. I am curious to try this recipe, looks good for a holiday treat.

    BTW, I have been following your blog for a while, we sat at the same table at the BlogHer Foodie meetup….


  2. Good to see you Gudrun! I adore the recipe cards…my great grandmother was quite the typist in addition to cook…I can’t imagine typing up recipe cards on her typewriter (which I have…)
