Pecan Sandies

This Pecan Sandies Recipe makes the perfect buttery cookie. Classic shortbread is studded with butterscotch chips and chopped pecans for a rich, nutty treat.


– Unsalted butter – Vanilla extract – All purpose flour – Powdered sugar – Salt – Milk – Butterscotch chips – Pecans

Add the softened butter and vanilla to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until the butter is smooth and creamy.

Step 1

With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour, powdered sugar, and salt. If the dough is too dry, add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time until the dough resembles a dry cookie dough.

Step 2

Next, add the butterscotch chips and pecans and fold them into the cookie dough. Shape the dough into a disc and wrap it in plastic wrap.

Step 3

Once the dough has chilled, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out to ¼” thick. Cut out your desired shape and transfer them to the prepared baking sheets.
