    melmaddie's Note:

    I received these as a gift last year and they did not last one night in my house! These pecans are a great Holiday Gift--especially for someone from Kentucky to give or for someone who used to call Kentucky their home. The taste is similar to a praline with just a hint of whiskey. Enjoy.

      One of the doctors I work with would get a huge handful of these and then announce to everyone it was his last handful. We'd catch him back in them within the hour, then the whole process would start all over. They truly are addictive. I actually used 1/4 c. bourbon because I love the taste.
