Okay, so Pecan sandies are doable? I love them, haven't found them, wouldn't even try to bake them, but there is a package of pecans ($5!) in the house....

I got the pecans to go into that pretty layered fudge. Bottom and top made with semi-sweet chocolate, melted in sweetened condensed milk, with a center layer of melted butterscotch chips infused with pecans. Doesn't that sound good? I think that I'll have a half package of pecans left.

Do you think we could come up with a pecan sandies recipe?

Fried to golden brown, the patties are crisp on the outside and moist inside. This method stretches the expensive ingredient without sacrificing its flavor.
