For a little flare, we like to top each cookie with a whole pecan to make this homemade treat look extra special.

Pecan Sandies are my favorite grocery store cookies. So I set out to see if I could duplicate them at home even though I don’t have a hollow tree! After tweaking several recipes this is the one I finally felt was the absolute best one. I think it’s even better than the Elves efforts! Whenever I get a pecan sandies craving from now on I’ll just dig out the cookie sheet and make my own. Sorry Keebler!

To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:

Butter, unsalted Vegetable oil Sugar, granulated Confectioner’s sugar (sifted) Eggs (large) Vanilla extract Flour, all purpose (500 gr.) Baking soda Cream of tartar Salt Pecans (chopped) Sugar, granulated (for decoration)
