Found this recipe years ago in a Country Woman Magazine. Then lost it...Well the other day while trying to find that darned Cheesy Asparagus Potato Soup recipe (that I already posted) I found a stack of magazine recipe clippings...CRAZY FUN!!! This recipe is a grand prize winner From a Paula Marchesi of Pennsylvania.
I messed up on one thing...I threw the pecans into the dough before I realized I was suppose to roll the dough balls IN the pecans (yes I usually read the directions through first, GEEZZZ) needless to say, I was not gonna pick them all out...so opted to roll balls in raw sugar.
