Lady Fingers

In 3-Evelyn Floy Garris 1910-1997, FAMILY: BROTHER & SISTERS (BEE) on September 23, 2009 at 6:57 am

1 stick butter
1/2 Cup white sugar
2 Cups flour self-rising flour
2 teaspoons cold water
2 ” vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Cream sugar & butter well, add vanilla, chopped nuts, then cold water & flour. Mix well & roll into fingers or balls. Bake 375 degrees for 12 mi.

Roll in powdered sugar.

(Editor’s note: The words above are copied off of the blue-and-white recipe card. I’m posting the entire card here so you all can help me with some archival puzzling. Do you think that the fact both the recipes for Lady Fingers AND Nutbars are on this card means that they BOTH came from Aunt Floy? Also, are these the same things that some people call “wedding cookies?”)

recipe nutbars & ladyfingers

  1. The lady fingers were definitely served at our wedding reception, so I guess they are wedding cookies. After they are rolled in powered sugar they are white, and so delicious. I remember helping Grandma make these cookies – and the roll into fingers was hard because the mixture was very dry – but Grandma said that made the cookies better. Yum, Yum.
