The presentation isn't all that attractive. There is so much flour, it takes up most of the jar. I would also suggest putting the pecans after the white sugar so the flour doesn't leak through...

My mother use to make these for me when I was a child. When ever I make them everyone is shocked on how good they are and what there is potatoes chips in them

I used to have this recipe. I have been looking for it again. I do two things different. I leave them in balls to bake them. After they a completly cooled I roll them in powdered sugar.

I made these cookies and while they were good I thought that they were too much like pecan sandies because they end up being a drier cookie.

Just made these with my 2 grandsons they had fun although we didn't do the jar thing. We love them, very different and surprizingly good.Thank you for sharing.
