Pecan Sandies are incredibly easy to make yet have a rich, buttery flavor that is worthy of a gourmet bakery.

With a perfectly crumbly texture, these nutty shortbread cookies are always a crowd-pleasing treat!

Butter Powdered sugar Water Vanilla extract Salt Ground cinnamon All-purpose flour Chopped pecans


Beat the butter and powdered sugar together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. 


Add the water, vanilla, salt, flour, and cinnamon and mix on low. Gently stir in the pecan pieces. 


Refrigerate the dough for about an hour. This will make it easier to scoop the stiff cookie dough. 


Preheat oven to 350ºF and line two baking trays with parchment paper. Scoop to scoop the chilled cookie dough into balls.


Roll the dough balls then place on baking sheet. Flatten the cookies so they are about ½ inch thick. 


Bake for about 12 minutes. The edges will be golden brown, but the tops will still be pale. 


Cool the cookies on a wire rack for about 10 minutes then enjoy!


These little cookies are a true classic and extremely popular around the holidays.
