Pecan Sandies with Toffee– melt in your mouth cookies loaded with crunchy pecans and toffee bits. So much tastier than the store bought version!
Pecan Sandies with Toffee

Do you like your cookies crispy or soft and chewy? I am a soft and chewy cookie kinda girl. Aside from shortbread, there are not many crunchy cookies that I love. But I am adding these Toffee Pecan Sandies to the list of crisp cookies that I could eat way too many of.
Toffee Pecan SandiesThey have a crumbly texture, which I’m guessing is why they are referred to as “sandies”. And they do just melt away in your mouth. I have actually made the recipe before, but this time I added toffee bits. And oh my gosh was that a great addition! I love the depth of flavor they add, and the extra crunch. If all you have ever tried are store bought Pecan Sandies, you should really give this recipe a try!

  2. These look so, so yummy! I have made shortbread cookies many times but never sandies—I am sure you are right. These must be so much better then store bought. pinned to try (hopefully soon, tee-hee:) Have a great week.
