Ingredients

Number of serving: 12

1) For Lemon Meltaways :

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel


Frosting Ingredients:

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened

1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel

1 teaspoon lemon juice


2) For Zebra Cookies :

1 1/2 cups butter or margarine

1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter or crunchy peanut butter, your choice

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups brown sugar


3/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

2 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

3 3/4 cups flour

12 ounces peanut butter chips (didn't use these for the Zebra Cookies)


3) For Pecan pie cookies :

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract2 c. flour

1 teaspoon baking powder


Filling :

1 cup pecans, chopped

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation

  • 1) Combine all cookie ingredients in large bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.Divide dough in half. Shape each half into 8x1-inch log. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (1 to 2 hours).
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Cut each log into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until set. Cookies will not brown. Cool completely. Combine all frosting ingredients in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until fluffy. Frost cooled cookies.
  • 2) Cream peanut butter and margarine, add sugars and mix well. Add eggs and mix until creamy. Add remaining ingredients. Chill for one hour-I usually skip this step and chill between batches.
  • Drop by teaspoonful onto cookie sheets- do not flatten. Bake at 325 for 15 minutes. Cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes then transfer onto newspaper, he newspaper soaks up extra grease so the cookies don't become crumbly.
  • 3) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine 1 c.up brown sugar, butter, egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a bowl, beat with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Reduce speed; add flour and baking powder and beat well. Shape dough into 1 1/4" balls and place about 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Press your thumb in the center of each to make an indentation.
  • Mix all filling ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl and fill each cookie with 1 rounded teaspoon of filling. Bake 8-12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
