Over the past few weeks, we’ve been digging into the Betty Feezor recipe vault here at WBTV and bringing back some of her best dishes and goodies.

WBTV Administrative Coordinator (better referred to as newsroom Mom) Susan Hancock has been bringing these recipes back to life in her own kitchen.

This week, Susan tried Betty’s Pound Cake Cookies.

Former WBT and WBTV employee Mary June Rose wrote to Susan with this recipe her mother copied down from one of Betty’s shows in the early 70s.

The legend goes, Betty Feezor’s kids enjoyed the slightly crispy top edges of a freshly-baked pound cake, so she improvised a cookie recipe that is still around today.

Here's the recipe:   In small bowl, blend with mixer 2 sticks butter or oleo and 2/3 c. sugar.   Add 1 egg and 1 tsp vanilla.   Work in 2 c. flour.   Drop on lightly sprayed cookie sheet.   Bake at 350 about 15 min. in middle of oven. 

As with all of Betty’s recipes, this one is great! The cookies aren’t too sweet, and as you can see they’re beautiful too… or they WERE beautiful.
