Rich, with a full flavor and great texture; this is also really good toasted the next day. This one comes from my mother, who made this all the time when we were little kids.

I HAD to make this when I saw the name....butter pecan is my favorite flavor combos! This was very good, I'll definitely be making this again. I got a little worried when I saw how thick and dry-looking the dough was but it turned out just fine and does toast up very nice! Thanks JDG, another keeper for my file!
