As a person who's not fond of pecan pie, I didn't anticipate liking these (made them for family), but I loved them. Maybe it's the chocolate or the way it gets nice and crunchy on the edges, but they tasted fantastic and the texture was terrific. The edge ones were nice and chewy and the center ones were a little softer, more like traditional pecan pie. The addition of chocolate chunks made it a nice variation from just all corn syrup. They were also very, very easy to make.

Yum!

These are one of the best cookies I have ever eaten. I don't like pecan pie or pecans but I absolutely LOVE these cookies. Whenever I bake cookies to bring somewhere, I always make these. They are in my top 5. Thank you so much for the recipe.

Gooey Goodness

As always i'm in charge of desserts for Thanksgiving. This year I wanted to try Pecan Pie and I stumbled across this recipe. I made it today as a "test". My husband and I each had one, I took several to the neighbors and hub will take the rest to work tomorrow. OH MY GOSH HOW OOEY GOOEY YUMMY!!!!! I didn't change a thing..oh and I used a glass dish and 'greased' it by using the residue from the melted butter - mine didn't stick to the dish.
