I'm not a mom, but I am busy and I also love a good, homemade cookie! I found this recipe and had to make it and I'm so glad I did. It took me about 30 minutes from start to finish!! These cookies are full of toasty pecan flavor, and not too sweet. Just perfect in my book.

How to Make Easy Pecan Sandies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 with racks in upper and lower thirds. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in vanilla and salt. Either by hand or with mixer on low, gradually add flour, beating until just combined. Fold in pecans by hand.
  2. Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper, two inches apart, 8 to a sheet. Flatten slightly with palm of hand.
  3. I really like to use a small cookie/ice cream scoop when I make cookies - it helps to make them cook more evenly.
  4. Bake until cookies are golden brown, 15 -17 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Store in airtight container for 5 days.......if they last that long.

    enjoy!
