    PaulaG's Note:

    These make a light crisp sugar cookie and can be dipped in melted chocolate for something a little different. The recipe was printed in the Fall 2008 of Penzeys Spice Magazine.

      Great cookies that were enjoyed by my family who give 5 stars. I made 60 cookies but did cut my cookies slightly thicker than 1/4 inch. I melted chocolate and drizzled over the tops of all the cookies rather than dipping them in the chocolate. Photo to be posted. Made for the Feb 2012 Recipe Swap in the Aus/NZ Forum. Updating the review to add- my wheat eating family have since declared these cookies to be the "best ever cookies" and I am now maing them for the 2nd time - 2 weekends in a row

      Made for Australia/NZ Swap #23. I, too, refrigerated overnight, which made the dough more handle-able. I got 60 cookies, of rather oblong shape, with a lovely, delicate pecan flavor. (Now I know why I usually stick to drop cookies !) Instead of chopping the pecans, I whirled them in the food processor to a tad larger than sand size. Thanks, Paula, for an addition to my holiday cookie plates.

      Excellent cookies! I ended up running out of time and refrigerating the "log" overnight. I baked them this morning and they turned out perfectly. I made an indentation with my thumb in the centre of the cookie and filled it with Raspberry jelly for a prettier look. Thanks for posting, these are great cookies! Made for Aussie Swap :)
