You might also know these as Mexican Wedding Cookies. I’ve heard a few other names for them too. But in our family they’ve always been known as “sandies”. This recipe from my Grandmother, the grandma that grew up in Mexico, so these are authentic and AMAZING.
These cookies have many names - Sandies, Mexican wedding cookies, Russian tea cakes, Snowballs and even Italian wedding cookies! They are basically a pecan shortbread cookie rolled in powdered sugar and they are delicious!Print Pin Rate

Can you freeze sandie cookies after they are baked or cookie dough.
I have never tried it, but I assume that yes you could. Not refrigerate as it will dry out an already dry cookie, but freezing should be fine. If you want to freeze the dough I’d make balls, spread them on a tray and freeze the tray, once frozen then I’d move the balls to a bag. I’d say the dough would be better than the final cookies.
