My Mother made these. She did not use chopped pecans in the dough. Rather than using a fork to flatten she would press a pecan half on top of each small ball. I bake them on top rack in oven for 15 minutes at 350. Getting ready to make some now. I normally use a couple of shakes of cayenne pepper. It's very easy to use too much. These are a holiday favorite at my house. She called them cheese biscuits. Not sure why but everyone knew what she meant and lined up for them.
