Oh. My. Gosh. If you like shortbread, you need to do yourself a favor and pick up a bag of Keebler Sandies Shortbread Chocolate Chip & Pecan cookies! The front of the package says that these will melt in your mouth, and their claims are right on the money!
My husband loves shortbread cookies, and he has been sneaking the Keebler Sandies into my shopping cart for the past 27 years of our marriage. This summer he found a new twist to the Keebler Sandies, they now have a version containing chocolate chips and walnuts. If you are a fan of chocolate chip cookies, you will most likely enjoy these!
They are made with rich shortbread (although there is no butter in the product), and they add real semisweet chocolate chips and crunchy pieces of pecan to make an unbelievably tasty cookie.
These are very thick cookies, they actually measure nearly 1/2″ thick! And like the picture, they are loaded with chocolate chips! I really appreciate it when a product actually resembles the picture printed on the front of the packaging! When you bite into these, they are quite soft and crumbly. I don’t recommend eating them while you are using your laptop! ;)

Wow, these are very tasty cookies, but they are addictive. And one look at the amount of calories and fat these cookies contain tells me that I really need to be careful if I have these around the house. A few of these cookies equals the amount of calories in an entire low calorie dinner!
It’s so easy to grab a handful without even thinking how fattening they are. My husband grabbed a bunch and handed me FOUR! I said, “no thanks”, and gave him back two of them. Even that was more calories that I like to consume from an empty calorie snack. And these are indeed empty calories. There are no redeeming qualities to these cookies. No protein to speak of, (what little there is most like comes from the walnuts). There is virtually no nutrition.
The package contains 28 cookies, and they come in a plastic container to prevent crumbling. We paid nearly $5.00 for this package, so they are a little on the expensive side. While real shortbread recipes call for real butter, these do fall a little bit short. Keebler uses oils instead, and not healthy oils at that. These are indeed very delicious cookies, my daycare children love them. However, they do need to be eaten in moderation!
