Many years ago, Steve’s great uncle came to visit from Arkansas. He said he wanted to make dessert and came back from the store with 3 ingredients: milk, pecan sandies and whip cream. What he created was heavenly to say the least. We can’t recall what he actually called his dessert and through the years, Steve and I would refer to this dessert as Pillow Sandies. Because it is literally pecan sandies layered in pillows of whip cream…and it is devilishly delicious! You really have to make this before judging. It is light and airy with a nutty, butter sensation. Yep, it’s that good.
Printable Recipe: Pillow Sandies
2 – 8oz tubs of whipped cream
1 pkg Keebler’s Pecan Sandies
Pour milk into a short but wide cup. Make sure the milk is deep enough to dunk a whole cookie into.
Dip one cookie at a time into the milk, dunk it all the way in and hold for 3-5 seconds. Spencer loved dipping each of the cookies. Of course I scrubbed the heck out of his hands before the dips! I loved hearing him count to 5 for each dip. You can add more milk as needed to the cup.
Place dipped cookie in a glass round dish. Continue dipping until you have an even layer of cookies. Dollop whipped cream on top and smooth into a 1/2″ layer of whipped cream ensuring all the cookies are covered.
Repeat steps 2-4 until you come down to the last 3-4 cookies.
With remaining cookies, crumble them on top of the last layer of whipped cream.
Cover and place in fridge to chill for at least 2 hours. Spoon out to serve. No it’s not the prettiest of desserts because it does have to be scooped and slopped onto a plate but the flavor really is out of this world. As far as ease, it’s the best. 3 ingredients that is dipped and dolloped into fluffy pillow layers. Yep, it’s that simple and that good!
