#2699 - Swedish Cookies

(by Aunt Faye [Herman] Minier)

1 cup white sugar
1 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed)
1 cup softened butter
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
3 1/2 cups sifted flour (measure before sifting)
1 cup chopped pecans

In a mixer add white sugar, brown sugar and butter--beat. Add eggs--beat. Add baking soda and salt--beat. Add chopped pecans--beat. Slowly add flour--beat. Flour your counter, place about 1/4 of the dough on the flour, and flour the top of the dough. Shape the dough into a log. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Wrap the dough logs in Saran wrap and refrigerate them overnight. The next day, take one roll out of the refrigerator, unwrap it, place it on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut thin sized cookies. Place the cookies on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Repeat with all dough.
