Cheese Pecan Cookies

Cheese Pecan Cookies created by Seasoned Cook

Cheesy with Sweet and Savory at its best!! This has been my alltime favorite cookie and is always baked every Christmas. I received this recipe years ago from my mother-in-law. It is essential to use all ingredients to get the sweet and savory effect. The combination of the garlic powder, toasted pecan and the powdered sugar is awesome!! A one-half pecan piece on the top makes it pretty, but a one-fourth piece will do as well. It is best not to let these cookies get too brown. These cookies are great with coffee!! Approximate servings is shown. Chill time not included.

    I loved these. I've gotten mixed feeling from others about them, just because the cheesy dough and powdered sugar seem weird to some. My daughters said they didn't care for them at first, but then said, "they grow on you"! Thanks for posting.
