The presentation isn't all that attractive. There is so much flour it takes up most of the jar. I would also suggest putting the pecans after the white sugar so the flour doesn't leak through them. Read More

I made these cookies and while they were good I thought that they were too much like pecan sandies because they end up being a drier cookie. Read More

A unique delight of a cookie worth tasting. I wasn't sure how it would be with potato chips but the end result was a pleasant surprise. The only suggestion I received was to add chocolate chips to them to give another flavor variation. Read More

I had fun putting this together. Mostly simple. A note - read directions very carefully!! I had no idea there was a difference in the mouths of the jars and I didn't read closely enough so I ended up with a ton of Regular-mouthed jars. You REALLY need the WIDE-mouthed jars - it would have made it SO much easier to press each layer!!! I can't wait to give these out as prizes at the baby shower! We'll also be making some of the cookies so that people won't be too afraid of them!:o) Read More
