This was a very good cookie, not too sweet. Make sure you make the balls 1" because these cookies do puff up and filling will just coat the top if indentions are not deep enough.
I will make this cookie again.
I used the conversion chart and the batter was so dry. I really tried to bake and make this work. It didn't work well. I would not recommend doubling or tripling the recipe.
Great cookies! The Dough was very sticky and a little difficult to work with but I wet my hands somewhat and it made all the difference, will definately make these again!
Excellent cookie especially for pecan pie lovers... the soft dough is not too sweet and the gooey pecan center is tastey. I'll make more of the filling next time, though. I guess I'm too generous with the goo.
As a holiday twist, you could color the dough to make little wreaths or you could sprinkle colored sugars on the dough as you are rolling the balls. I used red and green sugar (not enough to cover, just enough to speckle the dough.) The cookies looked quite festive but were not sweetened too much. It was a great addition to a wonderful cookie.
What a fantastic cookie! My 4 year old said it was the best cookie I ever made in my life, so that is high praise! I used a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon both for the indentations and for scooping in the nut mixture and it worked great.
These are pretty good. Be sure not to overbake, as they don't get brown, and they'll be hard as rocks if you eyeball them for "doneness"!! Very unique, and different from my usual cookies, but really good!
These weren't quite the prettiest, they spread a little bit and got a little puffed up, but they were soft and moist and were like pecan pie cookies. A very tasty little cookie.
I tried this recipe today to test it for Christmas giving. It's a definite winner! Very easy and VERY tasty!!
