Pecan Classic Cookies

I made this recipe from my friend Lynette (breezermon) last year and it's become a family favorite since then. I included them in my Christmas baking last year and simply everyone loved them.

Very crunchy, munchy, and good. They are delicious, the nuts are crunchy yet the cookie around the nuts remained soft except on the very edges. I'm thinking that a touch of cinnamon wouldn't go amiss added to the dough but they certainly don't need any additions. Thanks Breezer for another marvelous cookie.
