I rated this recipe a 5 because of the taste. They are delicious but, they are not easy to work with. Putting them on a wire rack could make a mess if the caramel oozes. I found using parchment paper works better. I just lift the paper with the cookies, place on wire rack and cool them that way. I then placed them in the fridge for a short time to harden up the white chocolate glaze. I did not use the Pecans as we do not care for nuts. This is fabulous cookie.
