If you love cookies and pecan pie, you will adore this cookie - it's basically both rolled into one! The cookie part is tender, buttery and a perfect vessel for the gooey pecan filling. These will be great to serve during the holiday if pie making isn't your thing. There's a little prep time for chilling, but overall this is an easy recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
