Pecan Sandies

I am so glad I made these cookies.  They are so good and they remind me of the Keebler pecan sandies except these melt in your mouth.  If you have lots of pecans you need to try these.  A friend gave me some pecans from her yard last year and most were halves so that was another reason I made this recipe.

This recipe uses both chopped pecans and pecan halves.
Start with 2 sticks softened butter.
Add 1 cup oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
Mix that well until nice and fluffily.
Add 1 egg at a time and beat after each
Add 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups all purpose flour, added one at at time and mix well after each.  Scraping down the sides.
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped pecans.  I used the small food processor so they will be chopped small.
In a bowl add 1/2 cup sugar for rolling.
Mix the pecans in well.
Drop by tablespoonful into the sugar.  Roll in the sugar
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  And place a pecan in the middle.  Place in a preheated 375 oven.  Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
Fresh from the oven.  The pecans have a nice buttery taste to them.  The recipe makes a lot so you can share them.
