I doubled the batch, and made bigger cookies to use to make ice cream sandwiches. Put Vanilla ice cream between 2 cookies and then rolled in crushed pecans. We were having a great time eating these yummy treats! Thanks so much for sharing Mommy!

Simply delicious! Crisp little cookies that melt in your mouth with a buttery pecan goodness! I used a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter and easily got 4 dozen cookies! Thanks for sharing this recipe, we love it! :)
