Walk to School Cookies

Welcome to the twentieth post in my year-long Cookie Series, where I want to bring you a new and delicious cookie recipe every Tuesday of 2015!

The name "Walk to School Cookies" makes me think of cute, barefoot pioneer kids walking to their one-room schoolhouse on a beautiful blue-skied, green-grass day. I imagine the little children singing hymns from church and picking wildflowers off the side of the road to give to their teacher.

What could make such a peaceful walk on a beautiful day any better? 

Cookies, of course! 



The cookies on the left hand side are drizzled with chocolate.
The ones on the right are covered with powdered sugar.
The cute little heart was made using chocolate.
After the chocolate set, we just set it on the cookie.
Whew, that was a lot of little comments!
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar and extra for rolling
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
  • Powdered sugar or chocolate to decorate

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar. Add in the vanilla. Slowly add the flour. 
  3. Stir in the pecans (if desired).
  4. Scoop into balls and roll in sugar.
  5. Set on the cookies sheet and mark with a cross hatch. If the fork sticks to the dough, dip it in the sugar. 
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  7. When the cookies are hot, you can sprinkle powdered sugar on them. Or, if you want, you can wait for the cookies to cool and drizzle chocolate over them.
