MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2014

"One of the best cookies I have ever made! I took these to a Christmas party and got numerous compliments on them. I agree caramel frosting did not stay warm long enough to drizzle - you have to work fast otherwise the frosting hardens on you. Also the next time I make them I will add the pecan pieces to the cookie dough versus trying to roll the cookies in them. They kept falling off of them and I definetly found that I did not need the full amount of pecans that the recipe called for."

"These are delicious. I found the caramel frosting did not stay warm long enough to drizzle. I ended up putting it in a candy bag and piping it on, warming it in the microwave after a few cookies. I had to wear rubber gloves as it was hot. Next time I will put the pecans in the dough. I can't really see them through the drizzles on mine, and they kept falling off the cookie."

"I didn't really care for these cookies. They were flat and the caramel topping was grainie even after I cooked it. Wouldn't make again"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 13, 2013

"I don't want to sound ugly, but if you are going to completely tweek/re-do the recipe, don't critique the original one and only give it a few stars. Let some of us have the sugar/fat, etc. If you made the original and you don't like it, state that and then tell us how you re did it; then it's an honest review."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 6, 2013

"Quite sweet - mixed the chopped pecans in the dough instead of on top. My daughter took one bite and said no more - it took no more than 5 seconds before she was asking for another bite. Beware these are addicting.."
