Delicious shortbread style cookies with plenty of nutty goodness. Love those Keebler cookies? Make your own Pecan Sandies with this easy and tasty recipe.
I can’t believe the time is going so quickly and that our 12 days of cookies is more than half over. It has been such fun thinking up new cookies to make and every time I put the picture of the new ones up on Facebook the kids always comment that they hope I am bringing some with me when I come for Christmas. Any ideas on how to carry a bunch of cookies on a plane?
Today’s cookie is one of my favorites. Have you ever had Keebler’s Pecan Sandies? I love those cookies! So I thought it would be fun to try making my own at home. Well, it wasn’t as easy as it looked but after 3 tries I finally hit on one that not only I love but everyone that tries them loves. They are really easy to make but you do have to take the time to chill the dough for a half hour or so to help it hold together.
This cookie is a shortbread-type cookie with lots of nuts and nutty flavor. If you like nuts, especially pecans, you will really like these. It is also less sweet than most offerings so it is a nice addition to a Christmas cookie tray.
Hope you enjoy!
