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
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..
