    1/2 cup margarine or butter,
    softened ar room temperature
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 large egg, separated
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    dash of salt
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup finely chopped pecans
    Candied Cherries (red or green) in half

    Cream together the softened margarine or butter and the sugar. Add the egg yolk reserving the egg white for later use. Add the vanilla flavoring and salt, mixing until all blended. Add the flour and mix until blended. In a separate small dish, beat the egg white with a fork just until frothy and set aside. With the dough, form a small ball (about the size of a marble), roll it in the egg wash, and then roll it in the finely chopped pecans. Place the ball on a greased cookie sheet and press a cherry half on top to flatten out the cookie. Place cookies about 1 inch apart on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup rolled oatmeal (quick)
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
    1 teaspoon all spice
    1 teaspoon nutmeg
    3/4 cup butter (12 tablespoons)
    1 cup packed dark brown sugar
    1/4 cup molasses
    1 large egg
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    coarse or granulated sugar, for rolling (about 1/2 cup)

    Whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg,and all spice in a bowl and set aside. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. The butter will begin to foam. Make sure you whisk consistently during this process. After a couple of minutes, the butter will begin to brown on the bottom of the saucepan; continue to whisk and remove from heat as soon as the butter begins to brown and give off a nutty aroma. Immediately transfer the butter to a bowl to prevent burning. Set aside to cool for about 5 minutes.
    With an electric mixer, mix the butter and brown sugar until thoroughly blended. Beat in the egg, vanilla, and molasses until smooth and creamy. Add the dry ingredients slowly and beat on low-speed just until combined. Chill dough in fridge for about 20 minutes (this is to make the dough easier to roll into balls). I found one needs to keep the dough in the fridge in between batches or it gets soft and doesn't roll as well.
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grab a tablespoon or so of dough and roll into a ball and roll in sugar mixture.Make sure all of the cookie dough is covered with sugar. Place dough balls on cookie sheet. (I use parchment paper.. easy clean up)Bake 9-11 minutes. Remove from oven and cool the cookies on sheets about 2 minutes then transfer to a wire rack. If you like cookies with a crispier edges, bake about 12 minutes. They will still remain soft on the inside. Repeat with remaining dough. Makes about 4 dozen cookies using a melon size tool.
