Alpha Bakers -- "The Dutch" Pecan Sandies

Buttery sables are my favorite kind of cookies, and these fragile pecan sandies are a perfect example of the type. Made with crumbly pecans, cinnamon sugar, and browned butter, they have a rich lightness that mirrors their eponymous sandiness. My sister says, "I kind of get dry mouth looking at the words "pecan sandies," but I think if she had one of these, especially with black coffee, she might find it suitably moist. Just kidding, she's hard to please and doesn't drink coffee.

Yes, these are the perfect cookies with coffee! You got your cookies to turn out with a nice shape. Now I must google sable cookies because I'm not really sure what makes a cookie a sable and it sounds so chic.
