This is a great twist on the traditional pecan sandies. I took these to a cookie exchange and they were a hit! I did use milk chocolate instead of white chocolate because I found the white to be too sweet.

Excellent - I cut the recipe in half as I didn't need that many. A very tasty, melt in your month, cookie! Thanks for the recipe!
