Pecan Sandies
Author: Joe the Baker
  • 1 pound butter
  • 200 grams powdered sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • Tablespoon salt
  • 1 pound flour
  • 260 grams pecan pieces
  1. Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and very fluffy.
  2. Add the yolks and salt and continue beating until completely combined.
  3. Add the flour and beat just until combined and finish with pecan pieces.
  4. Chill the batter for at least an hour before using, longer will develop deeper flavor, and bake at 350F until golden-brown and delicious; typically 12 to 15 minutes for a 3" or 4" cookie.
Recipe Notes

Be sure to taste your batter before serving it. I think a tablespoon of salt is a good starting point, but add as much as you like.
