Fudge-Filled Sandies Recipe
I dream of one day owning a cookie shop. Until then, I'll delight friends and family with my homemade concoctions. These cookies are like pecan sandies, but I've added a touch of delicious chocolate.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min./batch + cooling YIELD:24 servings
- 1 cup butter, softened
