I haven't made this kind of cookie since I was a little girl. I used to make them with my Mom. They are just as good as I remember. I like that they are not overly sweet and have a slightly salty flavor. This pairs well with the pecans. The only trouble I had was rolling the warm cookies in the powdered sugar. A couple of mine broke apart. Maybe I should have let them cool a little more before rolling. That's ok, though, it gave me an excuse to go ahead and eat the pieces out of the sugar.
