I have to admit I was a little confused with the addition of the pecans when reading the directions. Step 2 states to add the first 5 ingredients together, which includes the pecans. Then step 8 says to dip the top of the cookies in the pecans. Then step 12 said to sprinkle pecans on top. I decided to add the chopped pecans in with the flour and proceed from there. The cookies were crisp and really good with the raspberry jam. My daughter and I had fun making them. She really loved putting the jam on top. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
