Chewy Pecan Cookies Recipe

Chewy Pecan Cookies Recipe

Oatmeal cookies were always my son's favorite when he was small. I wanted to send him some recently, but I couldn't find the recipe. So, I got out the ingredients and made my own. My family thought they were the best I've ever made! The pecans add a real Southern touch. —Janice Jackson, Haleyville, Alabama
