    Color Guard Mom's Note:

    I got this recipe from the United Way, JC Penny Cookbook 1996. They are always a big hit at Christmas time. Baking time is per sheet - so multiply that by how many cookie sheets you need to use.

      Very good! I knew they'd be good, so I doubled the recipe! I toasted my pecans in a medium-hot iron skillet, stirring constantly for a few minutes, till fragrant. Although I used salted butter, I believe this would have been even better with 1/4 teaspoon added salt. My cookies baked for exactly 20 minutes, and they soaked up quite a bit of powdered sugar while warm! Tagged for Photo Tag, due January 4th, with extension.

      I love these cookies! Never knew they were this easy! Used my stand mixer to cream the butter et al. Used a melon scooper to make my balls - boy, was that a lifesaver! I had to bake my cookies a little longer than max. Will definitely make these again. Made for Photo Tag.
