Recipe Friday: Pecan Sandies


Hi all!! Here is a good recipe to fix with tea or coffee. It’s sweet but not too sweet and is really easy to fix. I love cookies but sometimes they can be a little boring. These are anything but. Enjoy!!


Pecan Sandies



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, vegetable oil, 1 cup white sugar and confectioners’ sugar until smooth.
  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt; stir into the creamed mixture.
  4. Mix in the pecans. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll each ball in remaining white sugar.
  5. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are golden.
  7. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
