These cookies are absolutely fabulous. They are thin, crispy, and full of delightful flavor. The butter is a key ingredient so no substitutes. You might want to make a double batch for the cookie jar as they don't last long. Also you will need to leave the cookies on the cookie sheet to cool as this ensures the crispy texture.

    Using a small scoop (about 2 tbs.) roll into balls and place them on cookie sheet about 2 1/2 inches apart (these spread out due to butter amounts!). With your fingers, gently press each ball to 3/4 inch thickness.
  • 4
    Bake one sheet at a time until cookies are golden brown and edges are crisp; the centers yield to light pressure. Rotate sheet halfway through baking. Bake 12 - 15 minutes (depending on your oven). Let cookies cool on cookie sheet.

    Melt chocolate over steaming water (not boiling). Choose a good chocolate, or perhaps Hersey Chocolate bars. Drizzle lightly over cookies and immediately sprinkle with crushed pecans.
