okay, so I've found that in order for them to not be too dry, you have to beat the (super softened)butter and powdered sugar for a while, so that it's really light and fluffy. Then I added only 1/2 cup pecans, (I bought them chopped, then before opening the bag, I crushed them until they were almost dust) and the extract then blended, then slowly added flour...blending after each 1/4 cup I added. They were so moist! Super easy to roll into a ball. I made a second batch and instead of the vanilla I added 2 tsp of lemon extract. AMAZING. With the first batch I drizzled chocolate over them, then dusted with powdered sugar.

This recipe was fantastic... I don't understand the reviews that claim it did not have a lot of flavor? In all fairness, I did omit the pecans and added 1C of Hersheys Kissables...buttery goodness with chocolate ... YUM- no one can eat just one! Definitely a keeper!

Very tasty cookie. Minimum number of ingrediants makes this recipe easy to assemble ahead of time or for same day. Final results are very impressive.

I was really dissapointed, there wasn't much flavor. I would try adding some almond extract.

The taste of the cookies is decent. They were too dry. Rolling them in powdered sugar and cinnamon is a nice touch. I added more butter to the second batch and they were still dry. I'll make snickerdoodles next time.

They are good but they're a little too dry for my taste, and i really think they would be better without the pecans. And i followed the suggestion to put the balls in the fridge before baking to keep them round and it worked! So thank you!

Very similar to Cocoons we make here in Southeast Louisiana. We just roll them in a cocoon shape. I also toast fresh Louisiana pecans to use in my recipe. It's my traditional Holiday gift to neighbors, friends and business associates. They all ask, "where's my cookies"?

My family LOVES these. I started making the first batch, by the second, the first was almost gone. Very very nice!
