These are amazing! We couldn't keep our hands off of these cookies. They're buttery and crunchy and perfect. We made one minor change to the recipe. The dough was really, really sticky, so we added 1/4 cup of flour to make it 2 cups. That helped keep it together, and, after refrigerating a few hours, we were able to slice it as directed.
I followed the instructions, except I used roasted black walnuts. I didn't get the result that I was expecting. The exterior was crunchy and the cookie had a bit of a chew to it. I always expect sandies to be light, sandy, and delicate, where they easily crumble in one's mouth. However, that might not be what everybody is after. I've done m-ann's pecan sandy recipe from this site and the results were more of what I would expect.
These were easy and delicious. Have a very creamy shortbread flavor. Definitely added them to my recipe box. Will make again.
Wasn't too sure about the recipe,since it has so few ingredients, but still tried it and I am sooo glad I did. I LOVE THESE! Will definitely make them again and again and again.
WONDERFUL! I think "dashes" should be "cups" as I ended up using a little less than 1 1/2 cups- just enough to pull the dough together into a relatively manageable log. My whole family loves them and has gobbled them up!
