This was one of Grandma's favorite cookies to make and we loved them too. She alway put a lot of chocolate chips in them.And if we wanted any cookies we had to crack the pecans. From our other grandma who lived in Alabama and had 2 pecan trees. she would send us a box of nuts every year they were so good.
