Would make this again.
Not sure about these, centre is way too soft, used an air pan (not recommended) and had to cook them 13 minutes, centre still feels wet. Haven\'t tried them yet, they look nice on top, doubtful I will make them again. 2 stars

Great recipe! I took the advice of another reviewer and added some coconut, maybe about 1/4 cup. I'm glad I did because half way through baking, I looked over and realized I had forgotten to add the chopped pecans. I added some to the remaining batter and continued baking. the coconut helped add a little body to the cookies without the chopped pecans.

I think my husband has eaten about 6 of them and he said he gives the recipe a 4.9 :-)

I make these anytime there is a cookie exchange! First, there's only 6 ingredients which is one of the things I appreciate in a recipe...simplicity. These are quick, easy, reasonably inexpensive, absolutely delicious and they keep well in an airtight container. These are sooo good though, I don't think you'll need to worry about storing them. You will however, want to make sure you have plenty of MILK! The recipe says it makes 5 dozen cookies, but they are so rich, I keep them about the size of a 50 cent piece. Just a bit larger around than the pecan half. I know I've gotten 6/12 dozen out of one recipe. If they are too big, they are almost gummy. Smaller is the way to go here. After cooling, your cookies should be soft and chewy, NOT gooey. If they are gooey, try a bit smaller. Try putting candied cherry or candied orange on top instead of a pecan. 5 stars
