PECAN SANDIES

It's not often that I make these cookies and I really can't say why because they are delicious.  They're easy to make, have a wonderful nutty, crunchy/crumbly texture, and a great sugar cookie taste.  The recipe is easy to follow and unlike a lot of recipes where you are overloaded with dough and spend half the day baking them, this makes little more than a couple of dozen.  
The recipe, as you can see, is from the Gooseberry Patch Old-Fashioned Country Cookies Cookbook.  I'm reproducing the page here, so you get a bonus recipe as well (though I've not tried this one and so can't vouch for them.)
During the warm days of spring and summer when you don't want to spend a lot of time dealing with a hot oven, these bake up quickly and will be most welcome at any outdoor event.
Give them a try.  You'll be the hit of the neighborhood!

I love pecan sandies, but like you, hardly ever make them. I think, for me, it has something to do with my eating them all myself!! Yours look delicious.

These look lovely - I am a total cookie freak and I know a good cookie when I see one! I have bookmarked this and will definitely try them!

I love gooseberry patch cookbooks. Your cookies look delish and I always think big cookies that you can sink your teeth into are the best. THanks for linking up to the Iron Chef Challenge!
