    These are AMAZBALLZ! I followed the recipe but toasted the pecans, added bitter sweet chocolate chips, and took 1/2 cup flour out and added 1/2 cup cocoa. Baked at 350 for 10 min turning 1/2 way through. (Will Post pictures at a later date)

    These are so light and easy to make. It's a good thing this makes nearly 100 cookies, because they were almost 1/2 gone when my husband found them. I added a few white choc chips and that put them over the roof. I did not roll in sugar because after a test with and without, I found the sugar made them a little to crunchy and sweet. Not bad, just not what I think of in a pecan Sandie. The only reason i didn't give 5 stars was because they were SO delicate, they fell apart easily.

    These are delicious cookies! I added milk chocolate chips to part of the batch, but the cookies are terrific without. Thanks so much.
