    Breezytoo's Note:

    A recipe I got from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook, contributed by Cheri Emery, using a cake mix. It's posted as written, but I used 5 pecan halves to give them 4 legs and a head!:) I also added a rolo inside each so when you bite into them you get caramel too! It's important the dough is completely covering the rolo or it will seep out!

      What an easy cookie to make! They are tasty, too! I made them exactly as the recipe specified and came out with 3 1/2 dozen cookies. I ran out of pecans so I made the last dozen with walnuts. I made 1/2 batch more frosting and that was enough to frost the batch. I used a pastry bag and star tip to frost them with. Made for spring PAC 2009
