  6. I'm definitely going to give these a go. Since moving to Spain I haven't had a single cookie, they don't really do them here. Well, thanks to you I can show them what they're missing. Thanks.

  7. Factory ~ Hi! Thanks for the visit! No cookies in Spain? I imagine they do a lot of custards and fruit for dessert. Yes, you will have to bake some! Enjoy! I'll come visit your blog, too!
    Always nice to "meet" someone new!

  8. Well you'll be pleased to know that I baked your cookie recipe today and it went down a storm. My Spanish in-laws were very impressed and have now commissioned a second batch. I couldn't get pecans so used walnuts, but that worked fine. The only problem I had was getting the dough into cookie shapes, how is that done exactly ? Anyway, thanks a lot for the recipe, and hopefully you'll be pleased to know it is now being eaten in the Mediterranean.

  9. Factory ~ Great! I'm so glad they turned out well...and the most important test...the inlaws approved! Walnuts sounds delicious! I use an icecream scoop to get that round, uniform shape. (the kind with the little arm that swivels when you squeeze the handle). Thanks...and I'm glad you liked them!

  10. I found you by google-ing pecan cookies. They look wonderful! I'm betting my 14 year old autistic boy (along with my other 4 children and husband) will love them, too! God bless you!

  15. This recipe has enough rave reviews that I will make them this afternoon for my Navy son who is coming home for Thanksgiving. It's the only thing he asked for; "chewy pecan cookies". Thanks for helping to make him happy.
