Chicago Cookies by *Ebonie Simone* - Cafeteria Style Butter Cookies w/ or without Pecans


Yes, you’ve had butter cookies, but not these!!

•••Cafeteria Style HOMEMADE Butter Cookies •••

Growing up in Chicago, these are a staple. Living in NYC 10+ years and I forgot how delicious they are. As an adult I recognized I’d never seen them in NYC & decided it was time to extend the sweetness to the East Coast & BEYOND!

Of course, butter cookies are everywhere, yet the simplicity of this recipe, an unspoken trick w/ the dough and my dearly departed Aunt Lou’s baking secret make these cookies hard to resist. I ALSO WAS TRAINED TO MIX THE BATTER AS A CHILD DURING HOLIDAYS SO THE ADULTS COULD
FOCUS ON WHAT REQUIRED USAGE OF A KNIFE. Little did I know one day people would come knocking on my door looking for COOKIES!!

++++ Some prefer them baked JUST ENOUGH, like my Husband...

+++ Most enjoy the edges slightly crispy and carmelized.

+++ Personally, I like mine the most crispy...usually a golden hue, possibly considered ‘overdone’.

Honestly, not to ‘toot my own horn’...THEY’RE ALL DEILISH!

INGREDIENTS: butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, & flour...

***if you order with PECANS, please send a note specifying what texture you’d prefer - otherwise you’ll get a mixture***
