    Seasoned Cook's Note:

    The taste is similar to a pound cake! Rich and buttery! For successful taste use only butter - no substitutes. A pretty cookie which is topped with chopped pecans. Our family has always used this recipe for parties, weddings, and holidays. It is different from the normal cookies and therefore, everyone asks for the recipe. It also makes a pretty presentation on a Christmas cookie tray.

      AWESOME! These are seriously delicious and simple, too! Everyone loved these and they were gone in a flash! I added drizzled chocolate (melted chocolate chips) to half the pan to give a choice and no one could decide which they liked better (although I think they just wanted to keep eating them!) Thanks so much for the recipe, Seasoned Cook!

      Made the cookies but I substituted praline pecans instead of plain pecans. Yum :) They are great with a glass of milk.
