      I followed the recipe to the letter and ended up with
      very crumbly cookies. They fell apart when I tried
      to dust them by hand with superfine sugar. Then I
      lightly dusted them with supefine and that worked better.
      I don't know what I did wrong. A few of the cookies flattened out, too.
      Maybe I should just stick to salads. ;)

      Yummy! These were so delish, especially with my morning coffee! I did make a mistake in making them a little too big but it didnt take away from the taste. I only made them big cause I had a hard time rolling them and getting the dough to stick together. This was definetaly a keeper in our household and I will make again and again. I love that the ingredients are things that I ALWAYS have on hand no matter what so this is perfect to make when company arrives unexpected, you know like in-laws! =) Thanks for sharing, I will pass this along to all my friends and sisters!

      WOW, these cookies are soo delish! They are melt in your mouth nutty goodness with an intense aroma and perfect crumbly soft texture!
      The pecans go great with the powdered sugar. I opted for toasting my nuts prior to incorporating them into the dough for an even stronger nut flavour. Mmmm!
      I doubled the recipe and am so glad that I did, cause the cookies were gone in a flash, even though I ended up with far more than 60.
      I made a batch of larger balls (walnut size), which baked in exactly 20 minutes and then also some smaller cookies (hazelnut size), which needed only 14 minutes.
      I used an unrefined powdered cane sugar and thats why my cookies are a bit brownish.
      This recipe is awesome, Kat, THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing it here with us. It was the perfect choice for today! :)
      Made and reviewed for PRMR December 2010.
