Give your family the gift of cookies this holiday season–every day, all day until they’re all cookie-d out.

I get a tad bit excited around the holidays and make it my job to bake as many cookie recipes as I can. Variety is the spice of life, right?

My favorite blogging buddies from across the web are making it particularly challenging to choose which recipes I want to bake this season. Do I make these Soft Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies? Oooh, how about these Chocolate Crinkles? Or maybe these Sour Cream Cut Out Cookies?

Decisions, decisions.

I think I’ll just make a batch of each.

Today I’m sharing one of my very favorite family recipes: my Grandmom’s Pecan Sandies. They’re rich, buttery, and incredibly easy to make. This recipe makes it to my cookie list every holiday season. I look forward to baking a batch (or three) of these pecan sandies every year.

The amount of butter in this recipe (2 sticks) is sinful. The holidays are made for butter, so let’s splurge. It’s the butter that make these cookies so dang yummy.

To take these cookies to the next level of deliciousness, they get a powdered sugar shower after they bake and cool. There’s no fighting it, you will be covered with powdered sugar after you devour a few of these cookies.
