I'm not leaving any stars for this recipe, simply because I screwed up making them. I never have Crisco in the house, so I tried making these with softened butter. While they were easy to make and tasted great, the texture difference caused by using the butter was quite noticeable. They looked good when coming out of the oven, but deflated as they cooled... eventually becoming thin as wafers and super-delicate. I'll have to make these again when I actually have the Crisco on hand.

These were good, but I wish I had added cinnamon to them. I added chocolate chips, and without I feel like they would have been sort of flavorless. Very nice texture, very cheesecake-like, soft and chewy. I burned the bottoms of one batch, and that only added to the texture!

Another winner from Kim127! First of all, they are so easy to make (just one bowl). I also yielded 30 cookies, which were light and not to sweet. I didn't have pecans on hand (like I thought), so I substituted chopped walnuts. Very good, and perfect with a cup of coffee. Thanks, Kim, for the great recipe, and thanks, Lainey, for the recommendation. Made for I Recommend Tag Game.
