TBB: The Dutch Pecan Sandies




Weather has been extremely hot lately, so when I read I had to roll the cookies, I did not feel like making them.  Plus I still have half a container of Mini Gateaux Breton baked 2 weeks ago (or was it 3 weeks ago?) that everyone got tired of eating it, including me.   However, when Marie suggested that I could bake it like refrigerated log cookies, I thought it was such a great idea and so much less hassle, so I changed my mind.  Making the clarified butter didn't deter me because I have a few tubs of these in the freezer...waiting for recipes like this.  I like to clarify a few blocks of butter at one go and then freeze them. But I didn't keep the milk solids though..I just threw them away.. argghhh.. I should have kept them!


The dough was easy to put together..but you need to press it hard to stay together.  

I added required cinnamon with the flour and when it came to the cinnamon for coating/topping, in my blur state, I add it into the sugar for the dough again! Nevermind I thought, probably just end up more cinnamony. 


Cut and dip in sugar and bake...


Fresh out of the oven - my whole kitchen smell delicious! 


Paired with morning coffee. 


These are very good cookies.  Just right amount of sweetness and spice (maybe a bit more in my case but is ok with me).  And now I know why these cookies are called Sandies, because the texture is very sandy...well, in a good way. :)

Did you make the coffee too? I agree that these cookies had the right amount of sweetness. Happy that you loved them and made up for not feeling like baking.

Your latte art is stunning! I did like these as log cookies, so much quicker.

Making them into logs is a great idea, and I loved the cookies, but they were So Much Work!

I was glad you worked out that you could roll them into logs. I made a few into stars but I didn't have time or energy to make them all before posting. So after that I just cut pieces off the block of dough and baked them! They were fine although not very shapely. :)
