The Way to a Man's Heart- Pecan Sandies

Pecan Sandies

Not too sweet, but with a wonderfully buttery and nutty flavor, this cookie, I've often heard called a "Wedding" cookie, is a suitable treat anytime and disappear quickly!

1 Cup of Butter (2 sticks)
1/3 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
2 Cups All Purpose or Self-Rising Flour (either)
1 Cup Chopped Pecans
¼ Cup Powdered Sugar (confectioner’s sugar)
2 Teaspoons Water


1. Preheat oven to 325ยบ

2. Beat Butter for 30 seconds

3. Add Sugar and beat until fluffy

4. Add Vanilla and 2 teaspoons water; beat well

5. Stir in flour and pecans

6. Shape into balls(about 1 inch balls)

7. Place on ungreased cookie sheets

8. Bake for about 20 minutes

9. Cool completely and shake a few at a time in a Ziploc bag with powdered sugar

Almost forgot these...I'm going to try for a low carb version. Will let you know how it turns out. Hmmm guess I'll be going into town for some pecans!
