These were just lovely. I really enjoyed using pecans as a change from the more common pairing of cranberries with walnuts. Since the center of my holiday trays are a spritz cookie, I tend to make all of my other cookies rather small. So, a half batch of this left me with 3 dozen one to one and a half inch cookies. In a bit of a rush so I popped my logs into the freezer for 90 minutes and that worked rather well. The cookies held their shape nicely though it added a minute to the baking time. The dough is tender with a good crispiness. Loved the tartness of the cranberries - one of my favorite fall flavors. I'm planning to keep this in my list of favorites but will probably add a little more orange zest and maybe some nutmeg to the cranberry filling. Thanks!!
