These tasted good, but mine didn't look anything like the picture! Obviously, I need practice with pinwheel making. I made a couple of mistakes. First, I used chopped pecans direct from the bag; didn't chop finer. So when I attempt to put the filling on the rolled-out dough...what a challenge. Second, for the first batch, I attempted to slice after filling/rolling. The dough is just too soft to slice, even with a sharp knife. The result is an oval-shaped blob which doesn't bake up into a nice 'pinwheel.' I found the dough really soft; used lots of flour when rolling. Didn't appear to affect the flavor or texture. I would give this recipe a four for flavor. My three rating is because this dough really can't be sliced without re-chilling, or freezing. (I froze the other two rolls; haven't baked them yet.) But, a super-good cookie.
