Hey, you added a comment to my Instagram page asking for the recipe for PECAN SANDERS! I wanted to make sure you had it handy in case you were doing some baking soon.
I first posted my Pecan Sanders recipe back on my old blog – 100 Cookies – back in March 2016. Remember March 2016??? Obama was still president!!! Remember him????
Ugh – I started thinking about that whole election cycle and got real emotional! David??? You still reading this???
OK – well – it’s been a while since I’ve blogged, y’all! I’ve been trying to make my running side-thing happen. It’s called Just Me 5K and you can check out the Instagram for that HERE!
Here are some other things that are happening in my young life, in case you’d like to know!
- Jimmy and I are still engaged! No plans for a wedding – so STOP ASKING!
- I lost about 10 pounds on my WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY! And then I stopped the journey – and need to restart it! Losing weight is the fucking worst! Right?
- Nina West! Wow!
- I had a dream two nights ago where I was in Oman (!!!), staying at a hotel. I go down to the hotel lobby shop and I’m like “I’d like some BBQ potato chips, please.” And the man hands me a bag of plain potato chips with a tube of BBQ connected to it. In Oman, you sauce your own chips. Isn’t that wild?
- Jimmy and I are selling our house and buying a new house and it’s all happening so quickly and I don’t have details to share just yet, because I’m trying to keep some things private, but we only just bought our current house 15 months ago and here we go again, you know? It’s all too much and I’m stressed out and this better be our house for more than 15 months this time because I can’t handle this shit anymore…. You really need to see the new kitchen, though – it’s fucking awesome – but also – where am I going to put everything??? Ugh – more stress! WHY WHY WHY WHY????
David! What’s new with you? Your dog is cute. Have you seen my dogs lately???? Here they are!
All right – are you ready for the recipe??? Are you so excited???
6 or so ounces of pecans (damn, these are expensive nuts!)
1.5 sticka butter
1/2 cuppa sugar
Big ol splash of vanilla
Big ol splash of water
2 cuppa flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda (NOT POWDER!)
Basic B buttercream frosting for decoration (powdered sugar, soft as shit butter and some milk. Mx until it’s frsoting)
First off, spray down a baking pan and drop on about two heaping handfuls of pecans. Bake those nuts at 350 for 5 min. Then chop into small bits with a dang food processor.
Next, mix together all the stuff including the chopped pecans. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for a half hour. Roll the dough out and cut circles with a biscuit cutter. Using a toothpick, draw on a Sanders face. I recommend a Vermonty scowl. Cook those shits at 350 for like 12-14 minutes and cool. When they’ve cooled off, apply your white frosting in a swirly disheveled hairdo swoop.
