      I love this recipe! The cookies do indeed taste exactly like a pecan pie-without all the work/time. I ran out of the filling and made 4 "plain" cookies and even they were amazing on their own! I also used 1/2 & 1/2 cream as I didn't have whipping cream in the house & they still turned out amazing. I guess I was making the well to deep because when I'd go to remove them from the sheet the center wanted to stay behind. I let them sit for about 5 minutes to let the sugar set. They came off fine that way & if a few didn't come off perfect, you can "re-position" them with your fingers on the drying rack and as they cool down they turn out perfect. SOOOO YUMMY! Thanks for posting.

      These are a lovely cookie; flavor and texture is outstanding. Everyone wants the recipe! I have made these as cookies and also pressed the dough into my mini-muffin pan and filled them to make pecan tassies. The only change was to use half & half rather than cream, and I cannot imagine they could have been any better. Thanks for this great recipe!!

      YUM! I made these cookies last night to take to work today. They are delish! Can't wait to see what the co-workers think. I substituted whole milk for the heavy cream because I didn't have any on hand. I will try the heavy cream next time to see if it's worth the added expense. The cookie batter is a very nice base cookie on its own and I'm sure I will use that in the future for other cookies as well. All around a wonderful cookie that was easy and quick to make. Thanks for sharing.
