      Roll dough on work surface into log measuring about 8" inches long and 2" thick.

      This is a really good pecan sandie cookie and it turned out well. I did have a bit of trouble following the recipe, but I think I was able to decipher it. A couple of examples are: in the ingredients, the recipe calls for a large egg and in the description it says to add the yolk. I added the whole egg. In the recipe it also said to beat the mixture for 25-30 minutes, which I think the chef meant to say "seconds". However, the end results of the cookie were very good. Thank you for sharing this recipe, grandma2969! It is a keeper. I will be making this cookie again!
