Pecan Sandies Cookies Recipe

Last week we had some chilly Spring weather so I decided to bake up a batch of pecan sandies cookies for my family. I got this delicious cookie recipe about 15 years ago from my mother-in-law and have been making it ever since. This recipe will make 32 to 36 cookies.

Pecan Sandies Cookies Recipe

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup powdered sugar (confectioner's sugar)

In a large mixing bowl beat together the granulated sugar with the softened butter until light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla extract until blended. Stir in the all-purpose flour along with the chopped pecans. Beat and stir all ingredients until well blended together.

Shape the cookie dough into 1" balls. Place the balls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place baking sheets into the oven and bake for 13 to 16 minutes or until the cookies are done. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Once they are cool, dust them lightly with confectioner's sugar. Store in an airtight container.
