Thinking ahead for Mother’s Day on Sunday, and planning on baking a batch of Pecan Sandies for my Mom as they are her absolute favourite cookies that I make. These cookies are delicate, light, buttery and melt-in-your-mouth delicious! I first discovered the recipe in a Martha Stewart Christmas Cookie magazine years ago and I have been making them for holidays and special occasions ever since. They are always a favourite on the cookie tray. Tip – I use my smallest OXO cookie scoop (2 tsp) to make perfect circular mounds of dough that bake into perfectly uniform sandies as pictured above.
Love the recipe – only 7 ingredients . . . butter, flour, sugar, pecans, vanilla, a pinch of salt, and a dusting of icing sugar.
