      Yummy! My mom is going to love these when I bring some home for Christmas. She is a big fan of pecans and this is right up her alley. Of couse the man and I also really like them. I double rolled them in the sugar like Barb suggested. I will say that these don't really spread much while baking so I was able to put them pretty close together. Thanks Barb for a new Christmas cookie standard!

      These cook up light. I think next time I will brown the pecans first. I double rolled them in the powered sugar… perfection!

      I loved these. I prefer them without the powdered sugar, just a hint of sweetness. I agree with the other reviewer, they are too delicate for a cresent shape. I refridgerated them overnight and they were hard to shape even into balls. They don't spread much so you can space them closer if you like.
