I have used many recipes from this site, but this is the first that I have been compelled to rate. I use alot of nuts in my baking, particularly pecans and this recipe is my new favorite way to use and eat pecans. I did make a few alterations to suit my taste. First, I used butter instead of margarine. I used 1/2 white and 1/2 packed brown sugar, doubled the vanilla extract and added an extra cup of chopped pecans. It is very important to beat the butter and vegetable oil with the sugars very, very thoroughly, until smooth and creamy, then add the other ingredients as the recipe states. The dough was thin so I put it in the refrigerator for about an hour to firm it up, as suggested by another member. Then used my cookie scoop to form even balls, rolled them in sugar and baked them for about 6-8 minutes on air bake cookie sheets. These really are the perfect cookie in appearance and taste. My fiance and his co-workers agree Thank you Mary Ann for this wonderful recipe.
