Pecan Sandies





Saturday is really turning into my baking night - we need to find a sitter. Until then, I'm making stuff, like these pecan sandies.

This is my kind of cookie - light, not too sweet, no preservatives. They have about as much in common with the bagged supermarket version as I do with Mrs. Slocombe. The recipe is from Lauren's friend Laura's father, and they're fabulous. It's tough to go wrong with butter, sugar and pecans, but these transcend the ingredients. They're crispy, the dough is full of tiny roasted pecan bits, and they only take about a half hour to make. Posted by Picasa
