    This is a favorite recipe that my mom used to make only in hers, there was 2 teaspoons of real vanilla included and the recipe called for ground pecans. To stop the cookies from breaking apart, cook them a little longer.YUMM!! :)

    Cookies tasted good, but are dry and break apart. I made recipe exactly as directed.
