Jennifer's notes for this recipe:
This is one from one of my grandmothers, Dorothy Wadkins. She baked these for a cookie swap my mom & I threw a couple of years ago. Pretty simple, but very tasty.

Pecan Sandies, meet Snickerdoodles! These cookies are very moist and chewy... and turned out looking just perfect.

First, let me say that the cookies were delicious, and my husband and friends loved them. However, I found them difficult to handle. They were very wet and hard to form into a ball so they were messy. I even baked two first to make sure they would come out OK. I'm going to make them again right now and will deal with it, but wondered if everyone is experiencing the same thing I am. My one friend who is a marvelous cook suggested that I had more pecans, and I will probably do that. Hope it works out. Thanks, Jennifer.
