National Pecan Sandies Day is an American food holiday that is observed by cookie lovers each year on June 23rd.

My mom has been making these as a Christmas staple for years.  We like them as the podered sugar covers them.  In my opinion still warm from the oven sprinkled with confectionery sugar.  Bet you cannot eat just one….

As long as baking has been documented, cookie-like wafers have existed.  Part of the reason may be because these sturdy cookies travel very well.  Cookies have changed and evolved over the years with the modern standards of sweetness and variety.  The mild sweetness of these cookies pairs well with tea and coffee.  The texture of these melt-in-your-mouth cookies is similar to shortbread cookies.
