    One of our family favorite cookies for the holidays-- these are sooo melt-in-your-mouth delicious! These cookies go by many different names. If you desire, you may sub walnuts or hazelnuts for the pecans. I hope you enjoy!!!

      These are amazing. I normally make them around christmas time for parties and they go fast! I don't really chop the pecans because you can't taste them. It tastes better with big chunks of pecans. Also be careful when rolling them in the powdered sugar. I put the sugar in a bowl and rolled them one or two at a time because they will break up.

      These were really good! I think I must have used more pecans because they were more "pecanny" than I expected. But they were still great cookies and I am going to make them again and again as they are a favorite of our family and are great cookies.

      What a treasure, so easy to make, I would even say foolproof. I used walnuts as that is what I had but only 1 cup and they still tasted & looked like they came from a specialty shop. Next time I will try with the right amount of pecans but not sure there is much room for improvement. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe.
