As you know, I’m becoming less of a picky eater.  It could be that over the past year I have been more adventurous with foods, or just I’m growing to like more foods. I can handle nuts (as long as they’re not whole) in a lot of things and actually enjoy the nutty flavor. I can also tolerate tomatoes in soups, but that’s about it for tomatoes. I think I would like Pico de Gallo, but mom and dad secretly don’t want me to like it- because that means more for them. The bad thing about it is, as I’m growing out of my picky-eating stage, my sister is still in the middle of it. Every day, it seems, she doesn’t like a kind of food, and it changes every day. She claims she doesn’t like stuff like donuts or pizza. Who wouldn’t like donuts and pizza? I’m pretty sure I’ve never said that in my life.

All that said, I’m glad my taste buds are developed enough to enjoy these Pecan Sandie Truffles. Yes, the main focus is pecans, but more importantly, pecan sandies. Those are probably my favorite storebought cookies (besides oreos) because they taste pretty good even though they are hard and crumbly.They’re a different kind of good than a gooey homemade chocolate chip cookie.

These Pecan Sandie Truffles are so easy to make they’re dangerous. Want to know what my dad said about these? When he bit into one of these truffles, he said “What are these? They’re amazing!” (We make him try our goodies first and tell us what he thinks before we tell him what they are.) “These are Pecan Sandie Truffles,” we told him.

A simple “wow” was all he said in reply. Oh yeah…he also said, “I want another one.”

Yes, the nuttiness in these truffles is amazing. I love how I taste pecans, but it’s so soft when you bite inside….just like cookie dough.

Pecan Sandie Truffles

These Pecan Sandie Truffles are a simple blend of Pecan Sandies, cream cheese, pecans and powdered sugar.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (13 ounces) Pecan Sandies
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans, divided
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 16 ounces vanilla Candiquik

Instructions

Break the Pecan Sandies cookies into large chunks. Place the cookie pieces into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup chopped pecans and powdered sugar. Blend this on medium speed for 3 minutes until the cookies are completely broken down and mixed into the cream cheese. Roll the truffle mixture into 1-inch balls. Place the truffle balls on a cookie sheet that has been lined with wax paper. Freeze the truffle balls for 15-20 minutes.

Melt the vanilla Candiquik according to the package directions. Using a fork, dip the truffle balls in the candiquik, coating them completely. Allow the candy coating to drip off and place the truflfe back on the wax paper. While the candy coating is still wet, sprinkle the tops with the remaining chopped pecans. Allow the candy coating to set and store the truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

    Forgive me for not knowing, but what is “candiquik” ?

    • Lizzy T says:

      Jan- Candiquik is a candy coating that you can find in the baking aisle of your store. They have either white or chocolate and it comes in a 1 pound block. It melts easily in the microwave and is great for dipping candies or for drizzing on top of treats. Here’s the website: http://candiquik.com/
