Years and years ago, when I was much, much younger than I am now, my father would insist on Pecan Sandies as his cookie of choice (my mother preferred the Fig Newton). I loved both, and on occasion, when nostalgia struck, would get Fig Newtons and munch happily until that moment passed.
Earlier this week, while grocery shopping, I saw Pecan Sandies. They called to me. I bought them, brought them home and opened the package.
Who knew that they were shortbread with pecans? Clearly, not I! I love shortbread, and I like pecans. Why didn't I know this earlier? What vacuum have I been living in?
This is definitely going to be a staple in my pantry. Dad certainly knew what he was doing!
