This company was founded as the United Biscuit Company of America back in 1927. It was made up of sixteen bakeries from Philadelphia to Salt Lake City, marketing cookies and crackers under a variety of brand names. That system lasted for twenty-two years, and eventually the name Keebler was adopted for the entire conglomerate. Keebler was linked with the United Biscuit name once again after it was bought in 1974 by a British company of that name.

Today the company makes 50 billion cookies and crackers each year; among them are the popular Pecan Sandies, first sold in 1955. The Toffee variety came thirty-eight years later.

    • Instructions

      1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

      2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, sugar, and salt with an electric mixer on medium speed.

      3. Add the eggs and beat well.

      4. While mixing, slowly add the flour, baking soda, water, vanilla, and lemon juice.

      5. Chop the pecans into very small bits using a food processor or blender on low speed. Be careful not to overchop—you don't want to make pecan dust...or pecan butter. The pieces should be about the size of rice grains.

      6. Add the pecans to the dough and knead with your hands until the pecans are well blended into the mixture.

      7. Scoop the dough with a tablespoon and press down to form a dome. Remove the dough from the tablespoon and press them flat with your hands onto ungreased baking sheets. The cookies should be about 2 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick.

      8. Bake for 22 to 27 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown.

      Makes 4 dozen cookies.
