I do make this cookie again and again. It is always the biggest hit of the evening and everyone wants the receipe. They are truly fantastic and never last overnight in my household unless I hide them. Temptation at it's best!

These were a great, hearty, just add milk cookie. I made half the batch with chopped up pretzel sticks instead of pecans for the non-nut-lovers in our family. They were equally as tasty in their own way.

Fantastic!!! I use mini Hershey Kisses, semi-sweet choc. chips and Skor bits. Have made them many times and they are always a big hit!

I love these cookies. My brother was serving our country in Bosnia and I sent them to the troops from Minnesota for a taste of home at Christmas. He had requested Chocolate Chip and I sent these instead, they are his new favorite cookie. They took a little more time but they are well worth it. I now make them every Christmas. God Bless Our Troops.
