I was pleasantly surprised when I got to work and had a HUGE Ziploc bag of pecans waiting for me. It was like Christmas! My grandmother had sent them for me. She is so sweet and one of the best cooks I know....I would much rather have a meal with her at her house than to go to any restaurant. :)
I found a recipe that I have been wanting to try and here it is!
Recipe for Pecan Sandies from Bake or Break
I did alter the recipe by adding a 1/2 bag of white chocolate chips to it.
Pecan Sandies Recipe (altered to my pantry!)
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 & 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 bag of white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Beat butter & sugar until fluffy on medium/high. Beat in vanilla and salt. Add one egg and beat. Gradually add flour and use low speed. Fold in pecans.
Spoon onto cookie sheet and cook for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes about 18 cookies.
