I had a few (ok, more than a few) of these cookies at my niece’s bridal shower and her wedding reception.  I asked my sister-in-law if she knew what they’re called but she didn’t and she also didn’t know who baked them.  Anyways, do any of you recognize these cookies?  Name?  Recipe out there?  Thanks!

Hi, I went to Pinterest and I searched: short bread cookies. I saw something similar. To me they could be short bread w/ chocolate and dipped in chocolate. It also showed “Sandie’s”..or some kind of Italian butter cookies. good luck.

Hi, Denden!

Welcome!

It’s hard to tell from you picture if they’re rolled and filled, or sliced and dipped.  Is there anything else you can tell us about them (composition, ingredients), since you seemed to have enjoyed them?

Thanks!

They look stuffed to me. Like a soft cannoli.

I’m so embarrassed to say that in both occasions, I didn’t even bother to look at the filling (just gobbled them up & enjoyed).  I don’t think they’re stuffed, though, but again, I wasn’t paying attention.  I just remember they had the right amount of crunch/crispiness—not soft and not very crispy.  I’d say they’re very similar to prettycake’s choc shortbread attachment.  I’ll search for shortbread, Sandies, and maybe even stuffed cookies just in case.  Thanks for your replies.

I thought maybe they’re Italian too because they remind me of Cannoli

They look flat (not stuffed) - there’s a cookie sort of toward the top that you can see the bottom of the cookie (the brown crust) which makes me think they are not stuffed.

They might be a type of Pecan Sandie (the name for a commercial cookie that is like shortbread, with finely chopped pecans in it), baked in an individual log shape, and then as prettycake’s photo shows - dipped in chocolate and then more chopped nuts…
