Growing up I didn’t think I liked nuts of any kind.  If something had almond or pecan in it then I automatically turned it down.  What was I thinking?

Now that I am older and my palate has changed slightly {my husband would still say that I am picky}, I am in love with almost every kind of nut.

Pecans are one of my favorites!  Especially when they are added to a dessert!  Make that a cookie or a cookie inside of a truffle and I am downright giddy!  Hello Pecan Sandie Truffles.

How to make a Pecan Sandie Truffle Filling

Start with a Pecan Sandie cookie.  I am talking about the shortbread, melt in your mouth, nutty, delicious cookies you find in the grocery store.

In order to get a great filling that sticks together, we want to turn those cookies into a super fine crumb.  So a food processor is pretty important for this step.

Add the package of Pecan Sandie cookies to the food processor and pulse them until…

You have a crumb that looks like this.  You can still see flecks of pecans but the shortbread has been broken down into very small crumbs.

To make the filling we need it to stick together and roll into balls.  My binder of choice is a brick of cream cheese.  

Combine the cream cheese and Pecan Sandie crumbs.  This can take a minute because they don’t stir into each other super easy.

I use the back of a spoon and press the cookie crumbs into the cream cheese until I can no longer see the white of the cream cheese.

The cream cheese will actually absorb the crumbs.

The end result is this awesome mixture that is easily manipulated and even more amazing with the addition of cream cheese.

How to Mold Cookie Truffles

From here we want to create the truffles.  I like to use a small cookie scoop so that all of my truffles are the same size.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.  Then scoop mounds of the Pecan Sandie filling onto the baking sheet.

The cookie scoop will give us the size we want but not the exact shape.  So now we need to roll each one of the scoops into a ball.

I just use my hands to work the filling into a compact ball.  Sometimes that requires you to squeeze the dough and make it more compact before rolling it.

Then place them back onto the baking sheet.

In a microwave safe bowl add 6 squares of white almond bark.

Microwave them for 1 minute and stir.  Then add 30 second increments and stir between each one until the almond bark is completely melted and smooth.

Dip each Pecan Sandie ball into the almond bark.  I like to use a fork for this step because it allows the extra almond bark to drip off easily.

Once the cookie ball is completely covered, pull the truffle out of the almond bark and tap off any extra almond bark.

Place them back onto the silicone mat lined baking sheet and top with a few chopped pecans.

Allow your Pecan Sandie Truffles to sit at room temperature until the almond bark is set up or refrigerate to speed up the process.

One bite and you will be hooked.  The combination of pecan shortbread with the almond bark {which tastes almost exactly like white chocolate} is pretty darn magical.

These Pecan Sandie Truffles would be so great anytime of year but especially good during the Fall.  If you like pecans make these truffles today.

  1. I just made these, and due to medical issues I only had one hand to work with in making them.
