This has become one of my favorite cookie recipe. Kids love em and friends too!
I have been making his type of cookie for 30 years. Let me help out the recipe a little. 1lb. Butter - softened, 1 C. sugar, 5 C. flour, 2 egg yolks, 1 t. vanilla ext. 1 C. chopped pecans cream butter and sugar, add flour in 3 stages, add egg yolks, vanilla and pecans. If too stiff, add oil a Tbl at a time. Use # 70 scoop, bake 11-14 min at 350'. make sure bottoms are browned. Don't worry about tops. They will set as the cool. While still a little warm, toss or dust, in or with, powdered sugar.
I usually love your recipes because they're simple yet very delicious. These cookies left me flat however. I followed the recipe but they turned out tasteless and the kind of doughy. Otherwise they were crisp and flakey just like you expect pecan sandies to be I needed to adjust the recipe I'll see if it turns out any better if not I have to look elsewhere darling that doesn't mean I won't come here for any other recipes just not this one. PS I added about a half cup regular cane sugar, and a dash of sea salt, and I'm cooking them at 350° Fahrenheit for 15 minutes I'll let you know. God bless.
I don’t understand where I went wrong, I followed the recipe to a T, yet my husband is still in the bathroom rinsing his mouth out as he cannot get the horrible taste out. Where did I go wrong? He said it taste like wet flour.
I took the pecan sandies to a Christmas party and after rave reviews, everyone wanted the recipe. Plan to do again this year.
Made these multiple times for family and friends. We all love them!
Great recipe! Instead of using my fingers to flatten I placed a small square of parchment paper on top of the cookie and pressed down with the bottom of a glass; no sticking and they look more like packaged cookies.
I have seen recipe with powdered sugar in it and also white sugar. Can anyone tell me which would give me the crumbly "sandy" texture like store bought sandies ?
Great cookie, easy to make.
