    taylortwo's Note:

    This recipe came from a cookie exchange I used to attend yearly. I love them but seem to only make them at Christmas. They probably can be made with any oily nut *like almonds* but I prefer them with pecans. They are very tender and they melt in your mouth.

      I believe the recipe is wrong. It calls for 2 tablespoons vanilla and I believe it is suppose to be 2 teaspoons. (I should have known better and questioned this before making them) Also, 12 minutes at 400 degrees is not long enough. Every other recipe I have pulled since call for 325 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes, some even longer. They had a strange taste due to the vanilla and they were raw in the middle.
