12 Days of Cookies



Swedish Dreams

Anyone who has eaten at the Ranger Room knows what a Swedish Dream is. A buttery, shortbread cookie with delicate flavors of coconut and pecan. A timeless favorite.

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/1/4 cups butter
1/2 cup & 2 Tablespoons vegetable shortening
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cup cake flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Cream butter, sugar, shortening, salt and vanilla until light and fluffy.  Sift dry ingredients together and add to butter mixture. Fold in coconut and pecans. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place heaping teaspoons of batter on ungreased cookie sheet and bake until edges just turn golden, approximately 12-13 minutes. Makes 2-3 dozen cookies.
