This recipe is easy and quick. Pecan sandies are literally shortbread cookies with pecans. YUM!
When my father was diagnosed as a diabetic, he had to watch what he ate. Instead of pies and cakes, he would eat pecan sandies. Yes, I know, those aren't the best for you either, but if you knew my father, you would know that he would NEVER give up on the sweets!
Nonnu, with two his granddaughters: Sierra and Maria
(Sierra - look at that great knit hat! Who made that?)
Confession Time: Mom, when you traveled for work, Dad always had pies and cakes...............Did I just tattle on my Dad?
Anyway, back to the recipe. Here are the ingredients for easy, quick pecan sandies.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/8 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup pecans
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
In a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the vanilla, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the flour, then the pecans.
Roll the cookies into a ball, placing them on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove them before they start to brown.
