NATIONAL PECAN SANDIES DAY
National Pecan Sandies Day is an American food holiday that is observed by cookie lovers each year on June 23rd.
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.
Another shortbread version of a pecan sandie is called a Mexican or Italian Wedding cookie. These powdered sugar coated balls also melt in your mouth and look like delicious snowballs – another name for the sweet morsel. They’re easy to make and store, too! Either version of the cookie is Celebrate Every Day® approved!
