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.

My parent's both love pecans and I couldn't find any recipes for the longest time that seemed like they might like them. I made a batch of these and within the day the entire batch dissapeared. I baked mine for nearly twice the recommended time to give them a slightly crisper texture. My mom said the texture was perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sweet enough for me. Not sweet enough for me. I doused them with powdered sugar, then they were ok. They crumble very easily, so don't try to stack them. They would be better off to stay as "Butterballs".
