    These were so delicious and easy to make. I've made two batches so far, one on a baking stone, and one on a regular cookie sheet. The ones made on the baking stone were much better. Five forks!!

    I just made these an hour ago. I ground up the pecans in my little coffee grinder. They turned out delicious and oh so cute! Now I'm off to go find some good jam...

    Mmm that sounds good too! I'm sure you could vary the filling to your taste - lots of combinations would work.

    I have a cookie recipe that uses cheese cake filling instead of jam. I need to find that and post it.

    It's definitely less messy than rolling the dough in nuts. And even my fiancÚ, who hates nuts, loves these cookies!

    These look great. I make a similar one, rolling the dough in nuts, but this looks just as tasty, and much easier. I'll have to give it a try.
