Another cookie celebration day!  June 23rd is National Pecan Sandy Day.  Popular Cookie Recipes has come up with a few ideas to help you celebrate this wonderful day.  You can start out baking a batch of homemade pecan sandies with our easy pecan sandy recipe.

Pecan Sandies Recipe

• 1/4 cup powdered sugar plus extra for coating
• 2 cups all purpose flour, sifted
• 1 cup finely chopped pecans
• 1 cup butter, softened
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 2 teaspoons vanilla
• 1 tablespoon water

Pecan Sandies Recipe Directions

Set oven temperature to 300 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and powdered sugar.  Add vanilla and water.  Mix well.

Combine flour and baking soda with butter mixture.  Stir in chopped pecans.

Using clean hands, roll the pecan sandy dough into 1 inch balls.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slightly with hand. If the dough is too sticky to work with comfortably, cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill until workable.

Bake at 300 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.  Cool on cookie sheet until you are able to handle the pecan sandies comfortably with your hands.

Place 3-4 pecan sandy cookies in a ziploc bag containing powdered sugar and shake gently to coat the cookies.  Remove from bag and cool completely on wax paper before storing in an airtight container.

After your pecan sandies have cooled, you can enjoy them with a large glass of milk or make a few of these cool treats.

You will need:

24 pecan sandy cookies and 1 pint of vanilla ice cream, softened

Place 12 cookies on a cookie tray.  Spoon a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on each cookie.  Top with remaining pecan sandies.

Freeze at least 2 hours or until ice cream has stiffened. Its best to put the entire cookie sheet in the freezer and remove the pecan sandy ice cream cookies from the tray after they have hardened.  Once frozen, you can enjoy the pecan sandy sandwiches immediately or you can place the in freezer bags to enjoy in the future.

Any of your favorite cookie recipes will work with this treat and any flavor ice cream you want can be used.
