Pecan cookies...yum

I seldom bake anymore, I just don't eat sweets very often and don't feel like trying recipes etc...but I saw a recipe on the back of the King Ranch pecan bag and wanted to try it, I adapted it, of here it is...and WOW...yummy!

1 cup Spectrum shortening
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups Bob's Redmill GF flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups finely chopped pecans

roll into 1 inch balls and bake at 325 deg. for 20 min. don't overbake cool and then roll in powdered sugar, if desired.

I rolled them in powdered sugar but next time I am not going to...they are that good on their own...YUM

(it says for chocolate ones you can add 1/4 cup of cocoa...I might try that next)

Amy's Soups!

I received a package today. It was free soup from Amy's Soups. It was addressed to me and Free to Eat which was my original blogsite. I no longer have that blog, I replaced it with this one, but I am delighted that I am still in Amy's database.
I received three cans of soup and a nice tote bag. I am very grateful, especially since the soup I tried today is really delicious. I hoped I would be able to report that, and am glad I can. The flavors and textures were so pleasing to me I keep moaning, "oh...ah..." It is that good, if you like brown rice and legumes and veggies and whatever the spices is delish!
