You can't go wrong with the combination of butter and pecans in this recipe. I never serve these cookies without receiving requests for it.

"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!! :)"
