This is a wonderful and nostalgic site! You have a wonderful recipe for LBJ's Roast, and I am anxious to try it. A family member shared a recipe for Lady Bird Johnson's Pecan Pie-that I have in my collection. It makes a delicious pie, similar to Eidson's... it is warm and nostalgic having recipes from loving, memorable Texas people. My Grandmother, in San Antonio, had a great recipe for sugar cookies that added orange and almond flavoring to the dough. It was the most delicious sugar cookie I learned to make. Tell me how, and I can certainly share them both.
