This is an extremly modified version of walnut crescent cookies that I got from my foodie friend Linda. First of all, I use pecans rather than walnuts. Second, I don't make them into crescents, I roll them into balls. Either way, they are delicious, addictive and never last long on the cookie tray during the holidays.
