– These are my most requested cookie. I usually make at least 500 of these at Christmas. Its a very simple recipe but packed with lots a flavor!
– OMG, these may be the best cookies I’ve ever had. Certainly the best cookies I’ve ever made. Soooooooooo gooooooooood! And easy. That’s always a plus. This is going to be a new Christmas cookie staple for me. Thank you, Denise!
– I included these in the cookie tins I give to my neighbors for Christmas. Two people told me how great they are, and one requested that I make another batch of just these for her. I happen to think they’re pretty good too!
– I made these cookies because my wife LOVES butter pecan cake and that flavor is in these cookies. The few changes that I made were, toast your pecan bits, 1 tablespoon of melted butter for 1 cup of nuts, 350 degrees for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. This process really enhances the flavor of your pecans. I also started with a full cup of room temperature butter and creamed only the butter first before adding everything else. I used Captain Morgan in the glaze and the 4 dozen “small scoop’ cookies disappeared in 2 days. MELT IN YOUR MOUTH! Truly a keeper.
