Pecan sandies evoke images of childhood, with simple store-bought cookies and family. This recipe lets you love out those times but gives you the tools to make them yourselves. The key, like many cookies, is brown sugar. This helps give it those crisp edges and that nice sweetness you are looking for. Now the pecans are always important but make sure you lightly toast them to bring it the days and all of that flavor.

Key Takeaways:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper in preparation for making pecan sandies.
  • Lightly toast the pecans in a skillet at low heat for 5 minutes then transfer to a plate to cool.
  • Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix for 2 minutes. Then roll dough into balls and bake for about 8 minutes, rotate, and cook for 8 more.

“Toasting the pecans deepens their flavor, making them even nuttier and giving this beloved cookie a pronounced flavor in every bite.”
