Top Review by Karamia

These are cute little cookies that have a nice mild flavor. Be sure that the pecans are very finely ground or else they can get stuck in the cookie press disks. Mine baked up perfectly in 6 minutes, but they are very fragile so I left them to cool on the sheet for alittle while. I made these for Christmas cookie trays and they were very cute. Thank you for sharing!
