Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made these for the first time for my husbands co-workers this season. Made these for the first time for my husbands co-workers this season. Everyone was wanting this recipe! They are very easy to make, I made a batch with pecan cookies pieces to them along with regular recipe for people who can't have nuts. Both are soooo good.
