    breezermom's Note:

    These are oatmeal cookies with pecans, that have an extra bonus of a brown sugar/pecan mixture placed right in the middle of each cookie. Cooking time depends on the number of cookie sheets you can fit in your oven, so that may vary! I guessed 2 cookie sheets in the oven at a time times 2!

      Great cookies, full of pecan crunch and flavor!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe which yielded 2 dozen. I made the recipe as written except that I used 1/2 shortening (Crisco) and 1/2 butter and then for the second dozen, I took Annacia's suggestion, and added 1/4 tsp cinnamon. Loved both versions and they truly don't need the cinnamon but are also equally yummy with the cinnamon. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for the "Best of" tag game.

      Very crunchy, munchy, and good. I made 2 dozen (and got 27 :D) and used only 2 Tbsp of Splenda Brown Blend. They are delicious, the nuts are crunchy yet the cookie around the nuts remained soft except on the very edges. I'm thinking that a touch of cinnamon wouldn't go amiss added to the dough but they certainly don't need any additions. Thanks Breezer for another marvelous cookie.

      I did use light brown sugar in place of regular sugar, only adjustment.. that's what I had on hand. I made these for a bake sale at our church's festival next week, so I only had 2. Very flavorful, and chewy for the couple I had, they are at the schools refrigerator, so we don't indulge ourselves, and for safe keeping. Tagged and made for Rookie Tag.
