I am absolutely shocked by the negative reviews. Obviously, those folks didn't prepare them correctly. They are flaky, crunchy - very similar to shortbread except cinnamon-y. I get RAVES anytime I make these. So, don't let the negative reviews keep you from trying these!!
These are not traditional cookies...they are supposed to be flaky, crunchy, NOT leavened ( so for heaven's sake don't add baking soda) Make sure they are pressed out evenly. And don't take them out too soon or they won't be crispy. They are not supposed to be overly sweet either..sort of like Mexican Wedding Cookies. The sweetness comes from he powdered sugar sprinkled on top. So, if you want a super sweet, sugary cookie...this is NOT it!
But, if you want to try something different and you love cinnamon and pecans...then give it a try! :-)
Sorry but I did not care for these bars, they are much too sandy dry for my taste, even though they were easy to make. You also forgot to list the vanilla in your ingredients.
THESE ARE THE MOST WONDERFUL CINNAMON-PECAN COOKIES- SWEET, CRISP, AND "CINNAMONY", VERY EASY, FAST, AND SCRUMPTUOUS!
Dry . . . but . . . does taste good. (Would make a good pie crust.)
I decided to give this one a shot in spite of the quasi negative reviews... The bars did not hold together well and were very dry. They also were not sweet at all. Maybe another egg and another 1/4c sugar would fix it?
these were awful! kind of like shortbread, but very crumbly and not at all crunchy.
Nice flavor. Not too sweet and very flaky.
I did not care for thie recipe...dry - like sawdust with pecans and cinnamon; the egg yolk causes the top to come off when cut.
