"My grandmother baked the most wonderful cookies, cakes and breads. These she sold during the Depression to make money to help her family. This recipe is among one of my favorites, because I loved crunchy cookies and pecans. This recipe went into my hope chest in 1963." — CHARMED_TWICE

These are wonderful! If you love pecans and pralines, you will love these crunchy cookies. They do taste like praline cookies. They are sweet enough but not sweet like pralines. They were very easy to make with ingredients already in my pantry. No trip to the store necessary. I don't bake very often, but these are worth baking. I made the recipe as written except I used margarine instead of butter since that is what I had on hand. I used a tablespoon to drop the dough on the cookie sheet, but these made much larger cookies than what I expected. I set out to make 24 and it made about 18. But they were delicious! These would be awesome if they were dipped in chocolate! Thanks for a great cookie recipe.
Delicious cookies, I did roll in sugar before baking. I had to turn my oven to 350, 375 was too hot. They cook up real fast, need to check on them after 7 minutes. This will be a popular recipe for me to bake. Thank you for posting it. This isn't a real sweet cookie.
These crispy cookies have a subtly sweet and rich praline flavor. Easy to make and delicious!
Loved it! I added extra pecans and put some bigger pecan pieces on top. The problem is I can't stop eating them.
I just made a batch of "Renee's Pecan Crunch Cookies". Let me say they are very good and very tasty. I will be making them again very soon.
