I wish I could star rate this recipe, but I messed up so bad that I can't. I forgot to add the milk AND the sugar. They are hardly edible as is, but I figure I can crumble them and mix them with sugar to use in a pie crust or something. It's been a tough day, so I will try these some other time, they look so yummy. Thank you Brenda. Made for ZWT5 & Dining Daredevils.

These are so good; I made them for DS's last day of school, and I hope they make it! They went together very easily, with ingredients on hand. The pecans are the star here! My yield was 62 cookies. Thanks, Brenda., for sharing an easy yummy cookie recipe. Made for ZWT 5.

I can't stop eating these, they're so yummy! As a chocoholic I thought the cocoa was a bit low, but the hint of choc flavour matches so well with the roasted pecans. A keeper. Made for ZWT3
