    Hey Jude's Note:

    Here's another terrific cookie recipe from my friend Bella, who is the world's greatest baker (in my opinion!). Prep time doesn't include chilling time (there are 3 different options for the chilling)

      These cookies were excellent! I made the recipe exactly as written, and they were delicious. Tasted like shortbread cookies, with pecan flavor. I will be making these again. Just make sure to take them off the pan right away. One pan I waited a little too long and had to chip away at them.

      Hey Jude, these were a great hit with my out-of-state family. Tasted just a few before I sent them, and am glad I did. These had a lovely mild flavor which unfortunately could lead to too many eaten! Will make sure these go onto our Christmas tray next year.
