MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 17, 2011

I was so disappointed with this recipe. I make several "pecan" type sweets, and was looking forward to adding this to the list...but No....It lacked something...It was a lot of work for not very much taste or show...

These were fairly quick and easy to make. After reading the first review, I decided to change the recipe around some too. I put about 1/4-1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring into the dough. When I rolled the strips up, I used pecans in some, raspberry jelly in others, and used the pecans with the jelly in a few also. They all turned out great!

Like Mary, I enjoyed this but it lacked something. So, I tried something different today. I made the dough as it calls for but instead of rolling it out, I made little balls and pressed them into my mini muffin/mini tart tin. I then made a pecan pie filling and put a teaspoon into the centers of the cookies and baked them. They turned out wonderfully. A great flaky cookie with a little more substance for the filling.

I used sugar coated pecans from Trader Joes. I think that put these cookies over the top!

The dough is great but, I was disappointed by the lowly pecan it seemed to need something else it was like eating a good cookie with a nut stuck in it (which is was) I will come up with a filling that has some substance to it
