Recipe Comments & Reviews

These are a regular treat in my home of pecan fans. I toast the nuts before adding to enrich the flavor. We love the chewy texture and top them with vanilla or caramel ice cream. Yum.
I have made these two times. I am the only one who will eat them. The husband and kids don't like them- too bland. I happen to enjoy a plain butter-cookie type treat. You cannot over cook them or they will harden and dry out quickly. Best to shorten the time.
very good and easy to make.
I thought this was good, but my husband didn't like the texture.
Delicious. I have made these many times.
