Perfect! My fiance makes these cookies every year but forgot to bring his recipe with him to my house. He thought this one looked like his recipe so he used it last night. Perfectly wonderful! Thank you!

I made these exactly as the recipe states and I could not get the dough to stick together. It is really crumbly and falls part. When I did finally get the balls rolled, they didn't flatten out like the picture, After they baked, they still looked like balls of dough and weren't appealing at all.

These were simply AMAZING! I made them for our Cinco de Mayo celebration today. I've never had these cookies turn out so well. I used walnuts for the recipe and chopped them finely in my food processor. made everything in my kithcenaid mixer. So easy and tasty! Made them again in 2010 :) Great cookies! Big hit... again!

I've always loved these, just didn't know how incredibly easy they are to make. Seriously an "easy level" sweet. I did as another suggested and chopped the slivered almonds in a food processor, made it easier. Once they were done it was way easier to just place them in a ziploc bag, as someone else suggested. One thing I started to do since I made two large batches was just waited until they cooled for 5min. and then placed them in the powder sugar. The sweets that I did this way came out with the same amount of sugar as those that were done by the two method coating. Great recipe, thanks!!!!

These are awesome! I made these with ground almonds. I tasted the dough before it was baked and thought the cookies were going to be terrible, but the powdered sugar and all the butter is delicious!!!!

Very easy dough to make. I whirled my whole pecans in the food processor until they were mostly powder and no pieces larger than a grain of rice. I think the secret to having them bake nice and round is to 1. roll them smooth. 2. UNgreased cookie sheet. 3. Bake room temperature dough (not refrigerated). Another thing is that the smaller the better for these little nuggets! OH, SO Good!!!

I chose this recipe for a couple reasons...1 I didn't have to toast the pecans and 2 I didn't have to refrigerate the dough. I was not let down...this tasted every bit as good as my "harder" recipe! I used a small scoop and got 54 cookies. This will be my new recipe for these cookies!

Just finished making these babies!! LOVE THEM!! My hubby who's not much into sweets that are not chocolate said..."did you get that recipe from my grandmother?" He loved them!! I will make them AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN, and AGAIN!!!! They are going out on our holiday goody tray. Oh, by the way, I didn't roll them in the powdered sugar, I put the sugar in a Zip Lock Baggie and shook them around a bit...it was SOOOOOO EASY!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for posting :)

I have been wanting to make these cookies ever since I tasted them once at a coffee joint. This recipe was perfect with the right amount of sweetness and nuts! I also loved the fact that it was eggless making it perfect for days when the family is fasting. I only had self-raising flour at hand so I omitted the salt and the recipe still turned out great! Mom's already requested it for the upcoming holiday!
