These are very easy and really good. I wasn't sure how the pecans should be prepared, so I ground them in my mini-processor. Dough was easy to handle and liked the texture from the oats.

These are quite delicious little cookies. Soft and sweet tasting, these were very easy to make. I used a gluten-free flour and pecans. Thanks Traveling Lady ~ these will go on the annual Christmas cookie tray. Made for MY 3 CHEFS, November 2009!
