      GOOD! The taste is similar to bought Pecan Sandies, but they are a more tender cookie! These cookies were prettiest, and tasted best when baked at 375F for 10 minutes! It is very important to bake these from VERY CHILLED LOGS, so they don't spread too much!

      NOTE: I prepared this dough ahead, and trying to save myself time on my baking day, rolled the logs in Turbinado sugar, and froze the logs for one week. My first batch baked at 350F for 15 minutes; they spread too much, the bottoms were too brown, and the Turbinado sugar puddled, and crusted around the edges! Next time I'll dust the counter with flour before rolling the logs, before chilling or freezing ~ then I'll dip one side of the sliced cookie dough into the sugar just before baking!
