Back in the 70′s, my little friends and I regularly searched under our couch cushions to scrape up spare change. Dad was notorious for napping on the couch with pockets full of change, so we usually scored pretty well. We often took that change to the drugstore to get cheap ice cream cones… they seriously had the best ice cream. Rite-Aid has now taken over that chain, and they actually still carry some of those same great flavors… like Chocolate Malted Crunch, Pecan Praline and Butter Brickle. In memory of childhood flavors, I made Butter Brickle Pecan Cookies.
6 ingredients quickly mixed make the dough for these easy-to-make cookies. Roll them into little balls and you’re good to go.
The balls are flattened slightly with the bottom of a glass.
They spread out and bake up into crispy, flaky cookies reminiscent of those much adored ice cream flavors. They’re too delicate for holiday mailing, but they’d make a nice addition to a cookie platter. Our family thought these were groovy and devoured a few before I relegated them to the freezer for future placement on my holiday cookie trays.
