"My family loved these chewy cookies. The only thing I changed is I didn't make the homemade icing, instead I purchased the Betty Crocker pecan frosting that's already prepared (much cheaper and easie..." See morer than buying the nuts and making it yourself)."
"Great cookies - very rich and chocolatey. Make sure cookies are completely cooled before icing or they break apart...." See more"
