A very nice university student made us a batch of these last Saturday (thank you Abby!), and they lasted until Tuesday, and even that required a lot of restraint. They may be my favourite cookies ever, but I am partial to Hershey's kisses to begin with. Our friend adds more flour than indicated, as they are quite crumbly.
How can anything with chocolate, pecans and a cup of butter NOT be heavenly?
