Luckily, I read the reviews before trying this recipe for the first time because I too, had to add another egg and a little more vanilla so that the dough would even stick together. After sticking the slices together, I ended up with only 21 cookies. They would have been big cookies, but I was about to serve them at my Danish grandpa's 98th birthday party. So after cutting them in half to double the batch, they still ended up a nice size. After cooling for only a few minutes, they were unexpectedly slightly crunchy. I'm still not sure why you have to make two separate "logs" and then put the slices together. I'm going to experiment with the next batch and see if they taste the same if I just add a third egg and a little more coarse sugar to all of the dough and just place the pecans on top right before baking. It's too bad this recipe is kind of confusing (88 pecans? Where did that number come from?). But I give it five stars because they taste so delicious. They taste like scones, only better. They go great with coffee!! Oh, and my Danish Grandpa and relatives loved them too!!
