Sand Tarts – Pecan Sandies2012-12-02
- Course: Cakes & Candy
This cookie was served annually at my Alma Mater. A favorite for the high school homecoming teas. It grew to be one of our family favorites. We always had these at Christmas time as pecans were in season at that time.
- 1 pound butter room temperature
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 5 1/2 cup sifted flour
In a large glass bowl, cream the butter. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Add the flour and chopped pecans. Use your hands to mix well. Shape the dough into small oblong pieces. The cookie will shape better if left at room temperature for a while. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool thoroughly and then roll in sifted powdered sugar. Store in a tightly covered container.
