Pecan Sandies

Last week my Mom brought me the 2010 Martha Stewart Holiday Cookies special issue (do you think this was a hint?). I have an issue of this from about 10 years ago and have made probably 1/3 of the recipes and all were excellent, so I was thrilled to get the latest issue. Martha has never steered me wrong when it comes to cookies!

I want to have a variety, so I am trying to start with recipes I know will freeze well -- tonight I made Pecan Sandies. They were buttery and yummy and really one (or two!) will do. I doubled the recipe. I did change up the all purpose flour for half whole wheat white to make it a smidgen healthier and used the small scoop instead of a big one to help with portion size. And baked 14 minutes to perfection. I now have 4 or 5 dozen of them wrapped up in my freezer. I even got smart and labeled the bag!


  1. These look yummy! Maybe I'll pick up that issue too.

  2. they actually have a section of the magazine for healthier recipes too!
