Crisp and loaded with goodies, these are my husband's favorite cookies. I used to bake them in large batches when our four sons still lived at home. Now I whip them up for our grandchildren. -Alice Kahnk, Kennard, Nebraska

MY REVIEW

"Great recipe! I love the texture and the taste and the fact that they weren't dry like some sandies recipes I've tried. I made the dough up ahead of time, rolled it into balls and froze them and then just baked what I needed. I like that it makes a big batch, too!"

"I melted chocolate chips and drizzled a small amount on each cookie"

MY REVIEW

"I LOVE this recipe and have made it many times since it came out in 1998. It makes a big batch so I freeze some for later.Over the years I've made some changes to make a lower fat pecan version. Here's what I did: substitue butter flavor shortening for butter (you may need to add a few drops of water to make the cookie dough easy to handle), substitute 1 cup of chopped pecans for the 2 cups of almonds. I've even skipped rolling the dough in sugar without my family missing the extra sugar.I encourage everyone to give Toffee Almond Sandies a try, one of the best cookies I've ever tasted."
