Chocolate Dipped Pecan Sandies Recipe

My mother’s pecan sandies have always been one of my favorite cookies. Light and crumbly, buttery and delicious. They practically melt in your mouth. But, the other day I decided to make Chocolate Dipped Pecan Sandies with a pinch of sea salt sprinkled over the top. Oh – maaa – garsh!
