I did not care for this recipe. It is easier in recipes where you cream the butter and sugar and then add the flour. The dough didn't turn out right both times I made it. I have tried other recipes where you cream the butter and sugar and will stick with those...they are easier to make and taste better!

So Tasty! My mom loved these cookies. I altered the recipe as suggested and used butter instead of margarine. I also creamed the butter before adding the dry ingredients and 1 3/4 cups of pecans. These were delicious!

My step-mother makes these, and they are fantastic. She does two things differently than this recipe, which I follow as well. We use 1 cup butter instead of margarine...I can't stand margarine. Also, we use 2 tsp vanilla, instead of the 1/2 tsp called for in this recipe.
