“Oh!” She said to me. “So, did you pick up some of Keebler’s Sandies?”
My mind immediately got very grumbly. No! I thought. I didn’t know that Pecan Sandies were a thing. If if you’ve ever read my blog before, you should know that it is not my intent to make all, or any of these dedicated food things on this unsubstantiated, dumb list, merely to eat them. I only make the food of the day if the circumstances warrant, and in this case I thought they did because I’d just never heard of these things. After I had already bought a fresh bag of confectioner’s sugar, some more eggs, a five dollar pack of pecans, and a new thing of flour, I was too proud to go back to the store and buy the pack of cookies. Plus. I felt a bit grumpy that I was going to have to make these things now. I mean, who am I, stacked up against a tree full of elves? Plus, I am just no good at baking cookies! It’s really hard!
Full disclosure, the picture up top was my third batch. I really am terrible at baking. I follow the recipe, but every single time, they just run all over the baking sheet like a giant pancake. It’s likely because, for some reason, on the first batch I always splop down way too much batter so that each cookie spreads to a good five inch diameter. Look at this mess that I made! I practically made a pie crust.
Anyway, after looking at the Google image of Keebler’s Pecan Sandies, I remember eating those things. They’re alright. And when I say alright, I mean alllllllrrrrrright! Kind of a delicious shortbread cooky with a few tiny, tiny pecan nibblets in them. My brand was a kind of thin sugar cookie with a whole bunch of pecan chunks shoved in there. Considering I’m a huge fan of shortbread cookies, Keebler wins this bout.
See you Sunday for National Pralines Day!
