I love these cookies. It is actually one that was a recipe for a magic in the middle type cookie, but I fell in love with just the simplier cookie of the chocolate and pecans. I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I have. I would have a picture, but they don't last long enough in my house to get one! Maybe next time.
