Another Pecan Delight!
My fiance loves pecans, so I made this and they were excellent! I substituted peanut butter hearts on the top though, since he loves pecans and peanut butter combination and used some milk chocolate ones for me. Thanks for sharing!
I made these cookies for a Super Bowl Party. They were a hit. Everyone loved the great taste. They were easy to make.
