      These cookies are so good...much like a Mexican Wedding Cookie with a bit more nut taste and not quite as sweet. A win-win in my book! With 6 in the family, we managed to eat them all shortly after they came out of the oven. I will definitely make these again. For the amount of vanilla I added 1 tsp. and I baked the cookies for roughly 9 minutes. Made for the Best of 2010 Recipe Tag game.

      Yummy! I so enjoyed these with a nice cup of tea for breakfast! I couldn't help it, they just melted in my mouth washed down by the tea. Loved the pecans! Thanks! Made for Australian Swap-Feb. 2010. Update: The directions called for vanilla, but it wasn't in the ingredient list, so I added 1 tsp. vanilla. The directions said to bake at 350*F. but gave no time so I baked about 10 mins.

      these just didnt work. They came out the oven as crumbs. Darn tasty mind you, and would be great on ice cream, but not as a "cookie" at all.
