I have been making this recipe for years and everyone absolutely loves it! I have altered slightly over the years and personally love to add cinnamon -- it's always a big hit and provides just a bit more flavor. Read More

My husband really liked these but the kids didn't like it and I tried to like it but couldn't. They weren't bad but they were extremely rich and maybe I am not a pecan person. Because they are so rich I can't imagine eating more than a couple at a time. Read More

Wonderful stuff--a big pay off for little effort! Pretty delicately sweet and pleasantly crusty and crispy. I added 1 tsp. of cinnamon to the sugar and was very pleased with the result. Watch these closely as they bake--I found I didn't need as much time as the recipe directs! Read More

These need to be baked for about 1/2 the time. They were delicious but a little overbaked. Next time I will make sure to bake them for just 15 minutes. Read More
