How to Make Pecan Sandies
- Preheat the oven to 325.
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in the flours, salt and flavoring of your choice. Mix in the pecans. Shape into little balls and place on parchment lined baking sheet. I use the bottom of a glass that had a design cut into it and pressed onto the cookies. At this point you can also add an optional almond to the top for looks. Or a whole pecan (which I was apparently out of at the time I was making these cookies).
- Bake about 15 minutes, checking for signs of golden color around the edges. Cool on a cooling rack.
**While they melt in your mouth and taste wonderful, they look kind of plain. They may need a little dressing up. You could sprinkle course or colored sugar on them before baking, place a whole nut on top, or sprinkle some powdered sugar over them when they are cool. Or just eat them as is!
