Raspberry Caramel Pecan Sandies

Well the story behind this cute and the yummy little cookie is simple to make. Everyone seems to LOVE the Mexican Wedding Cookie, or the Italian Wedding Cookie, or Russian Tea Cakes…

I don't mind them, but they aren't a favorite - not by any means.

So, I thought I'd play with it and try to please everyone - AND ME - and that's just what I did by creating this delightful little morsel of a bite.

Raspberry Caramel Pecan Sandies

Cookie Ingredients:
  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • powdered sugar for rolling

Raspberry Caramel Filling:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup raspberry enlightment (from Penzys) or raspberry seedless jam
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Directions:
In a large bowl, cream butter and 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in vanilla.

Combine flour and pecans in a small bowl; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

Roll into 1-inch balls and place 1-inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Using your thumb or end of wooden spoon, press into center of each cookie (as large as you dare with out wrecking the cookie) making a nice indentation.

Bake at 325F degrees for 17 to 20 minutes, or until edges start to brown slightly.

Remove cookies to cooling racks, then roll in powder sugar while still warm, place back on racks to cool completely.

Prepare the filling: In a small saucepan, mix together brown sugar, cream and raspberry sauce. Bring to a full boil. Remove from heat and whisk in 1 cup powdered sugar.

Spoon or pipe raspberry caramel filling into the center of each cookie.

Allow caramel to set, then store in air tight container.

A Classic
by: Juliana P.

My grandmother's favorite cookies were the Pecan Sandies. I wish she were here so I could bake this delicate, scrumptious and tasteful version with raspberry and caramel of the "classic" Sandie. I'll have to try these on my own without her; but who didn't say I can't drop a batch off at a church, club or fundraiser. Unless, they are too good to share in which they probably are.

Wonderful Recipe
by: Kathy S.

This looks like a great cookie. I like the idea of the sweet and tart mixed together. It also sounds like you could change the filling for your taste.

Thanks for re-inventing an old favorite. You have a winner with this cookie, I am going to make it soon.
