READY IN: 30mins

This is my favorite recipe for pecan sandies and tastes just like the store bought ones. The recipe is from, but I wanted to save it here, and in my special cookbook!!

I love Keebler's but I just wasn't thrilled with these. They were too dry (I baked them for 12 minutes) and I didn't feel like there was much flavor to them. They were okay, but not a recipe I'd bother to make again. I also only got about 24 cookies.
