I just love pecan sandies or wedding cake cookies, theres so many names for these cookies. So when I came across this cute idea for wrapping easter egg cookies I thought these sandies would be perfect because they dont loose there shape when bakeing.
So cute and perfect for easter table.
Can use any style cookie as long as they dont loose there shape. Add different nuts or no nuts Your choice.
