Mm-mmm! As this recipe's first reviewer I am eager to give it a two thumbs up! It looks as tho' it might have been around a good while, and what a shame it's been left unnoticed. These cookies are rich and buttery, tender and light. Just delicious, prepared in a heartbeat with just an unbelievable five ingredients. The ingredients and measurements for them are reliably accurate; the instructions simple, concise and well-written. The submitter suggests pecan halves or jam as options (I particularly like the jam idea) but I wanted something fall-ish so I pressed the top of the dough balls in fall sprinkles and then pressed a teeny mini peanut butter cup into each. This cookie is appropriate for any season or occasion and there are fun and limitless possibilities for decorations or toppers.
These truly are a Delicious cookie! I made these for my Christmas cookie trays this year instead of using pecans I used a Hershey kiss in the center! These will be made again!!
Lovely, buttery cookie and so little effort is required to make these. I also used Hershey Kisses in the center instead of pecans as I had some leftover in my fridge from Christmas. I plan on making these again with jam. I didn't follow the directions exactly as written...after beating in the egg yolks, I beat in the vanilla, then gradually stirred in the flour with a wooden spoon, as this is the method I am accustomed to when making cookies.
