These are fabulous and SO easy! Great pecan-buttery flavor. Very reminiscent of Russian tea/Mexican wedding cakes. Made the dough 2 days in advance (it took about 5 minutes with a mixer) and brought to room temp to form and bake; they came out perfectly. Might make a great freezer cookie, rolled into a ball and chilled then sliced. I'll add this to my Christmas fave list!
