This recipe makes the Best Homemade Pecan Sandies! They are light, buttery, and crisp with that distinct "sandy" texture, and loaded with pecans. So good!!
- 1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
- 3/4 cups oil
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 2 cups chopped pecans
- 1/3 granulated sugar
|Preheat oven to 325 |
In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, oil, and sugars.
Mix in the eggs, vanilla, and salt.
Add 2 cups of flour and mix. Add baking soda and cream of tartar and mix again. Stir in remaining flour until combined.
Stir in pecans.
|Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll each ball in sugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges are golden. Allow cookies to cool on the sheet for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. |
Store in an airtight container. These freeze well, too!

This recipe is awesome! I toasted the pecans before and substituted half the sugar for brown, they were perfect!!! Definitely a keeper
This recipe was amazing, thank you!! I separated the dough into several bowls & added different topping like one bowl I added sprinkles, other bowl I added chocolate chunks, & other bowl I added pecans.. they baked up wonderfully.. I didn’t have cream of tartar so just added baking powder 1/2 tsp and worked fine ..
