Love for Food + Pecan

Pecan Sandies (Cookies)

Pecan Sandies are the second test cookie I wanted to try for the holidays. My mom gave me a cut out of this recipe but she can't remember where she got it from. I love pecans so I wanted to give this one a try. These cookies are cheap and easy to make (.3 per cookie!). They do require a bit of cooking time so make sure to keep that in mind. The good part is that you can keep the dough in the freezer for up to two months.Ingredients: Serves 84/cookies
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans (after roasting)
1 cup butter softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Method:

  • Preheat oven to 350, bake pecans in a single layer for about five minutes, until fragment.
  • Beat butter and sugar at medium speed.
  • Gradually add flour beating until just blended.
  • Stir in pecans and vanilla.
  • Divide dough in half and shape into two logs. (about 1 1/4 inch thick)
  • Wrap in parchment paper and refrigerate for about 1-2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 325. Cut logs to 1/4 inch rounds and place 1/2 inch apart on parchment paper lined baking sheets.
  • Bake 325 for 20 minutes.
