These chewy, toasted pecan treats are a must with my cookie munchers every holiday. Using caramel and chocolate drizzle makes them doubly delicious and so pretty on the plate.—Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania

"My new favorite cookie! Even without the drizzles, these cookies rock! I used a little more chopped pecans that the recipe said so that I could really crust the cookie balls in pecans. If you don't want to bother with the drizzles, skip them; but instead of the caramel drizzle that was not very successful according to the reviews, I used the caramel drizzle for the Caramel Drizzled Spoons. It uses caramels and heavy whipping cream melted together in the microwave. I used 24 caramels and 2 tablespoons of cream. I had enough to garnish a couple of ice cream sundaes to go with the cookies. No complaints from my hubby!"

"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."

"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"

"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."

"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.."
