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 did not care for this recipe.
Very good. Though, I did have to add more flour than stated (1/2 cp.) I used a 1 TBSP cookie scoop to make them uniform in size. I then floured the bottom of a glass, banged excess flour off by tapping the side of the flour container, and pressed them flat. I got 65 cookies from this batch. Loved them! Thanks for sharing.
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.
I made these for my parents. My cousin happened to be at my house when I was packing them up to deliver. I gave her some to try now that's all both my parents and cousin ask for. They were a big hit! DELICIOUS!!!
Really nice cookie
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.
