Pecan Sandies

Pin It

This recipe is listed on Marvelous Mondays

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.
