"So easy to bake (no eggs involved) and delicious--I modified a basic shortbread recipe to jazz it up and it turned out a lot like a pecan sandie, but homemade."

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine butter, cream cheese, and sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Add flour and mix until combined.
  3. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and set on ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned on bottom, 10 to 13 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool, 8 to 10 minutes more. Place one pecan half on top of each cookie and dust lightly with powdered sugar.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use margarine instead of butter.
  • For a slightly chewy cookie, bake for 10 minutes. If you prefer a more crispy and store-like cookie, bake for 12 to 13 minutes.
