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.

The most unique recipe I've tried in a while - definitely taste like little mini pecan pies!!!! I just used skim milk in place of the whipping cream & still found the filling nice & rich. I will definitely be making these for every special occasion!

What a good cookie recipe, I am a fan of pecan pie but don't like to make them. These little cookies hit the spot. I did run out of filling at the very end of the dough, but I think I might have added a bit more to the cookie well. Very yummy, and will be a surprise for when my family gets home later tonight. Thanks for sharing.

I made these for Christmas this year and they are so very yummy. I made the well a bit to deep on the first ones that went into the oven so they spread out too much and the centers fell apart. (I love a good excuse to eat cookies warm from the oven) The rest of them were prettier and held together. I can't wait to make these again soon. Thanks flower7

Delicious! I actually melted the butter instead of creaming it and they came out perfect. Next time I'm going to add some mini chocolate chips to the dough.

I love a good cookie and these fit the bill! I made them to share with my family, at a gathering, and everyone loved them! I had a bit of filling left, but may not have made my indentations large enough. I also used 1/2 & 1/2, as that is what I had on hand, and it worked out well. They really do resemble a pecan pie in flavor! We sure enjoyed them; thanks for sharing, flower7!

Took these to work bake sale and everyone raved! I also had to taste-test beforehand, to make sure they were acceptable, and I LOVE these!!!!!!! I used like twice the amount of filling, and they ended up gooing everywhere, but they were still incredibly tasty. I'd like to try putting the dough in muffin cups, then shaping, then filling, to see if I can keep these puppies contained. Or I might try little tart pans.
