The finished product is attractive and tastes delicious; the cookie is delicate and breaks easily but if proper care is taken in storage, this shouldn't be a problem. This is a good recipe to double, if you can get enough whole pecans to place on top of the cookie. I had a little trouble with flattening the cookie using a floured glass; next time I'm going to try powdered sugar instead of flour. Definitely worth making though. The dough was very easy to make, took only a few minutes, and baking time wasn't long at all. Temperature and times were accurate.
