12 Days of Christmas Treats: Pecan Sandies

     This is another one from my Grandmother's recipe box.  It is basically a Southern Grandmother's dream recipe.  Butter and pecans with a couple other things thrown in to hold the two together.  Well, perhaps it's my dream recipe...

Pecan Sandies 
1 C butter
1/2 C powdered sugar, sifted
2 C plain cake flour, sifted
1 tsp vanilla
1 C finely chopped pecans

Cream butter.  Add sugar.  Mix well.  Add flour.  Mix, and add vanilla and pecans.  Roll into small balls.  Bake at 325° for 20 minutes.  If oven tends to overheat, lower temp and set pan under sheet to keep bottom of cookies from burning.  Makes 34 cookie scoop size cookies.

Nobody doesn't like pecan sandies!

  1. I think I am gonna make these. They sound awesome. I so wish we were close so we could exchange cookie platters. Yum! Maybe Friday, with the kids. Thanks for this.
