“FAMILY FAVORITE!! We have these wonderful cookies all year long. They are the ABSOLUTE BEST - easy and a roll can be in the freezer for a quick batch! The chopped pecans add to the flavor. My mother and Aunt baked these for years and now I am passing this one-in-a-million recipe on. Dough can be kept in freezer for 3 months.”
