Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease baking sheet.

2. Stir sugar, egg, butter and cheese in large bowl until creamy, butter and cheese are small lumps, 4 minutes (or beat with mixer 1 minute). Stir in cocoa, salt. Stir in milk and vanilla.

3. Gradually sift together flour and baking powder into mixture, 1 cup at a time; stir in flour just until blended before adding next cup. When all have been added, stir just a few seconds more to mix well. Stir in pecans.

4. Drop batter by heaping teaspoonfuls, 1 inch apart, onto prepared baking sheet.
