Bet you can't eat just one. These are light and tasty, and so quick and easy to prepare. They go great with a cup of tea or coffee, or just about anything else. I don't even remember when I first started making these, but the original recipe didn't have pecans. In the South, we believe that everything goes better with pecans, so I added them. The recipe was delish before... but oh yeah, the pecans are a winning addition.
