“This is a family recipe. There aren't really any steps, just mix everything together...I guess that's how they used to do it :) The dough will be very oily due to the butter, oil, and pecans. Don't let it get to you, these cookies are very good. Not very friendly to your waste line, obviously... They do cook very fast however, so be sure to watch them!”
