These are good cookies, they really are. I do think that I used too much butter in them (I used the larger amount of butter.) They just seem a bit too buttery, too sweet to me. I'm sure this is a personal preference, and that a lot of people, maybe even the majority of people will say that they are just right. They were very easy to make. I did substitute cashews for the pecans. I didn't make any other changes. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
