Never baked these, but they sound yummy and a nice compromise to pecan pie. Can these be prepared ahead and frozen?

Hi Cynthia, you can definitely freeze these. Just place in a plastic resealable food bag with parchment paper in between layers of cookies. Happy baking!

This recipe is great and fairly easy.My only question is why powdered sugar in the filling?My pecan pie recipe calls for brown sugar and gives it a totally different flavor.I am trying my next batch with brown sugar and I'll let you know how they turn out. Denny
