These are great! I actually like them because they aren't too sweet, and the texture is almost cake like. Got 26 from the mixture, so that was a bonus! Eve =)

I have been experimenting with different pecan cookie recipe's and this one is the best! They are delicious. I did heaping teaspoons instead of tablespoons. Thank you.

addictive little things! i agree- not really cookie like but very good. i subbed splenda for the brown sugar, egg beaters and light canola oil spread to cut down on calories. that makes it easier for me to justify eating a dozen! thanks.
