    These cookies are gorgeous! Have baked them and given them as a gift, have given them as a gift jar, and have eaten far too many of them! Friends and family love them, and they are so easy to make.... I do agree though that a I litre jar is too big, but one of the best recipes I've ever found online.  -  11 Mar 2015


    just had a trial run of these cookies in a jar before giving as a prezzie....firstly I measured ingredients and found them a little lost in a 1litre jar, would say 750 would be sufficient...I used walnuts rather than pecans and found the mixture yummy, instructions a little brief, mixture really gooey so may needed a little extra flour to make little round balls which I then flattened slightly once on the tray, I also cooked for nearer 12 minutes but that may be my oven....overall pleased with result and will make again  -  01 Apr 2013


    I've made 5 batches so far and they don't seem to make it in to a tub, they r far to addictive they vanish from the baking sheet.  -  06 Jan 2016
